GREENVILLE, Maine — Beth Lorrigan, 55, of Brewer will officially begin her new duties as Union 60 superintendent in Greenville on Oct. 1.
Lorrigan, special services director in the Orrington School Department, was the unanimous choice of the school committee at an Aug. 26 meeting. She also will serve as special services director. Her pro-rated annual salary was set at $75,000.
“I am looking very much forward to this new position,” Lorrigan said Wednesday. “I think the Greenville School Department has a great reputation and I think it’s going to be a wonderful place to work and learn.”
Lorrigan said she has been with the Orrington School Department for 11 years and before that was a special education coordinator at the United Technology Center in Bangor.
“I’m going to be working closely with the community to determine what their needs are and how I can help them continue to provide a quality education in these difficult financial times,” Lorrigan said.
The position was left vacant when Heather Perry left at the end of the school year for a similar position in SAD 3 in the Unity area. Since her departure, Ray Freve has served as interim superintendent.
