In June, Central Valley Superintendent Jeremy Rich received the OHM BOCES SLS Administrator of the Year for 2021. Mr. Rich accepted the award at a breakfast gathering of OHM BOCES librarians, teachers, administrators and staff. The presentation was delayed a year due to COVID.
CVA Librarian Steve Inzer represented Central Valley's library team and thanked Mr. Rich for his steadfast support of the district's four school libraries. He especially noted the decision to place a full-time media specialist in the renovated Jarvis library.
“Amid the COVID-craziness of the Spring of 2020, it would have been very easy for Mr. Rich to scuttle his plans to add an additional full-time librarian to the payroll. But Jeremy recognized the value that this position brings to the students and staff of the building. Now we have a thriving reading, literacy, research, and library program for all of our middle school learners,” said Mr. Inzer.
