Women’s History Month is a national celebration of the achievements of accomplished and courageous women in history, culture and society and has been observed annually in the US during the month of March since 1987. 

In honor of this year’s theme “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories,” chosen by the National Women’s History Alliance, we are proud to highlight just a few of the incredible women who are making a difference at South Colonie by telling their unique stories. 

Up next in our mini-podcast series is Linda Kennedy, secretary to Lisha Kill Middle School Principal Dr. Tresansky.

Kennedy has been serving the South Colonie Central School District since 1994.  She has worked at Roessleville Elementary, Sand Creek Middle School and is now rounding out her career at Lisha Kill Middle School.

More than a building secretary, Kennedy has dedicated her time to making her Lisha Kill community a priority always creating a special environment for the students and often serves as party coordinator extraordinaire.
