On April 19, the South Colonie Board of Education honored Lisha Kill Middle School Principal, Lindsay Tresansky, for receiving her doctorate degree in Education Policy and Leadership.

Additionally, she holds the New York State Superintendent’s Development Program certificate from SUNY Oswego.

This recognition at the Board of Education meeting helped celebrate the accomplishment of Tresansky who was appointed the role of Lisha Kill Middle School principal in 2021.

“Her achievement is one that we are proud to recognize,“ said Superintendent of Schools Dr. David Perry.  “Her dedication to education is not only reflective in the way she serves her students and families as a building principal, but in her passion to be a lifelong learner.  Myself and the rest of the Board of Education are both proud and excited to celebrate Lindsay on her well-deserved accomplishment.”

“It is an honor to be recognized for this degree,” said Dr. Tresansky. “Earning a doctorate has been a long time goal of mine, and I am excited to incorporate what I have learned into practice in our school community. I am proud to work for a school district that supports the continuous growth and development of its leadership team and staff.” 

Tresansky has spent the last three years working towards the completion of her doctorate degree at SUNY Albany. 

This degree and the skills learned will allow for a more thorough approach to her work at Lisha Kill. In addition, she will be able to use this knowledge to continuously make improvements and positive changes to the rapidly evolving educational experience for students.

“We are all very honored to work with and have Dr.Tresansky as a part of our district,” said Board of Education President Brian Casey.  “Please join us in celebrating her achievement and the wealth of knowledge she will continue to bring to her work.”
