The Scarsdale School Board has named Thomas Hagerman its 10th superintendent of schools. After a nine-month search, the board chose Hagerman for his strong relationship with the community, high energy level, and integrity.
After earning bachelor’s (BA ’92) and master’s degrees (M.Ed. ’94) from Lewis & Clark, Hagerman completed a doctorate in policy organization and management from the University of Oregon. Hagerman served for nearly three years as superintendent of the Winnetka School District in Illinois, where he wrote a strategic plan and award-winning communications plan. After reviewing his progress at Winnetka, the Scarsdale, New York school board agreed unanimously to hire Hagerman. “He is a terrific combination of left and right brain skills, a creative problem solver and a consensus builder,” said board Vice President Sunil Subbakrishna.
