Recently, Lakeview Local School’s Superintendent, Robert Wilson, has announced his retirement. While the district is excited for his future and what is yet to come, everyone will miss him greatly. Several staff members at all three levels in the district have expressed their thoughts on Wilson’s retirement.

High School anatomy and physics teacher Maureen Bucko stated that, “Mr. Wilson is a great boss who has always been very easy to approach whenever anyone had a question or issue. He will be greatly missed.”

Dana Dragash, the biology teacher at the high school, expressed her thoughts on Wilson’s retirement, as well. “I’m very sad to hear about his retirement and I will definitely miss him a lot. I appreciate how Mr. Wilson has always put the teachers and students first and he has always had our best interests at heart, and I hope that our next superintendent does the same.”

1st grade teacher Jennifer McAllister was yet another teacher to commend Wilson. “The Lakeview students, staff, and community have been blessed by years of Mr. Wilson’s leadership, passion, and commitment to excellence. He will be greatly missed!”

5th grade math and language arts teacher Kara Kasula also explained how much she will miss having Wilson as a boss. “I feel sad that he is leaving. He has been a great boss and has always been supportive. I would like the next superintendent to have the same family values that Mr. Wilson did and to be supportive of the teaching staff.”

Elisabeth Wilson, a 7th grade reading and language arts teacher at the middle school agreed with the rest of the teachers, and expressed that, “I will miss hearing Mr. Wilson’s motivational and humorous speeches. He has been a strong leader for many years and he has certainly left his mark. Lakeview is a very progressive and impressive district. The next superintendent has big shoes to fill.”

It is quite evident that Mr. Wilson has left quite a positive impact on the Lakeview community. Although the Lakeview staff is excited for Wilson’s future and the future of Lakeview Local Schools, they will all miss him greatly.
