Candidates For School Board

Keith Hanvey
     I have lived in Bainbridge for over twenty years. I have been on the B-G Board of Education for six years. For the past two years, I have served as President. My daughter Meghan is a staff Registered Nurse at UHS Delaware Valley Hospital, a Health Services Nurse at SUNY Broome Community College and a student at Binghamton University studying to be a Family Nurse Practitioner, MSN - FNP. My son Kyle served his country in the US Marine Corps for four years and was honorably discharged with the rank of E-5 Sergeant. He and His wife Christina live in Northern Virginia. He remains employed aboard MCB Quantico. Christina is a RN at Inova Alexandria Hospital. All three are proud Bainbridge-Guilford grads! 
     I would very much like to continue as a member of the B-G BOE.

    My wife Natalie and I have lived in Bainbridge since 1985., We bought our house on Evans Street and raised our two sons, Russell and Cameron, while we both worked in the field of education. I taught Sixth Grade English and Reading in Afton before transferring to Physical Education where I taught grades One through Twelve. My experiences in coaching led to my assignment as the Athletic Director at Afton Central School from 1981 to 1984. 
     In 1984, I returned to my hometown Greene where I taught Physical Education in the high school. Coaching included the Head Football Coach, Junior Varsity Basketball and modified softball. These opportunities later included Junior Varsity Girls Basketball and Varsity Softball. My love for my students gave me great pleasure in the sports arena. 
     I completed my degree in Administration in December of 1989 and was thrilled to become the Middle School Principal in July of 1990 at Greene Central School. Greene’s Middle School consisted of grades seven and eight, but the district wanted to create a fully implemented Middle School with grades six through eight inclusive of common planning times for all three grade levels. They needed to create six classrooms to accomplish this transition. I was assigned to lead the district’s project for all athletic facilities in this project which was completed in 1993. In 1998 Greene Central School promoted me to the position of High School Principal. We added eleven college courses to the high school curriculum in our desire to elevate the strength and rigor of the High School experience. Greene was recognized as one of the top high schools in 2005-2006 in the United States. 
     I interviewed for the position of Superintendent of Schools at Franklin Central School in the Spring of 2006. I was thrilled to be their final candidate and started in that position on July 1, 2006. We began to seek opportunities to increase academic challenges and establish several distance learning courses for our students. 
     I have been a member of numerous professional organizations throughout my career. Each organization directly connected to the position I held with the district. For example, I joined the NY State Middle School Association while I served as the Middle School Principal. I became the DCMO BOCES liaison with the State Education Department and was later elected to the Board of Directors for the NY State Middle School Association. Later I was elected to be the Principals’ Representative to the NY State Public High School Association a position I held until I became a Superintendent in 2006. In 2009, I was elected to be the Superintendent’s representative for the NY State Public High School Athletic Association. This position represents 70 schools in Section IV. The NY State Rural School Association serves as a professional organization in support of rural schools in NY State. I joined Rural School to assist in the enhancement of education in the area. My involvement in this organization result in my being elected as it’s president for two years. 
     Retirement has been wonderful and I enjoy the time with my wife and our two grandsons. I feel I have had great experiences and feel I would love to provide additional leadership to a district that already has an excellent reputation.
