The Bolton Central School District Board of Education appointed P. Richard Trowbridge as the PK-12 Building Principal at its meeting April 7. Effective July 1, Trowbridge will replace Michael Graney, who is currently the PK-12 Building Principal and will be moving into the Superintendent’s position upon the retirement of current School Superintendent Raymond Ciccarelli, Jr.
Trowbridge is the Lead Supervisory teacher at the Stuart M. Townsend Middle School in the Hadley-Luzerne Central School District and also serves as the middle school guidance counselor. Additionally, Trowbridge is the athletic director for the Hadley-Luzerne Central School District.
“I think Bolton Central School is a fantastic school,” said Trowbridge. “The staff works incredibly hard and I’m impressed with the students. The students feel they can do anything, and they do. They walk out of school with confidence, thanks to all the opportunities and the positive influences. I grew up in a small school and I like that atmosphere.”
Trowbridge earned an associate’s degree in liberal arts from North Country Community College and a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Castleton State College.
At the graduate level, Trowbridge earned both a Master’s degree from SUNY Plattsburgh, and subsequently earned Administrative certification through advanced graduate studies. Married with two children, Trowbridge resides in Warrensburg.
