ARLINGTON – Arlington School Board directors Kay Duskin and Jeff Huleatt were honored recently at a farewell celebration for their combined 36 years of service.

The Nov. 25 board meeting gave continuing board members, staff and the public an opportunity to recognize the two education and community leaders, including separate resolutions passed that acknowledged their contributions.

“Words cannot fully express the positive impact that Kay and Jeff have had on our students and staff,” Superintendent Chrys Sweeting said. “They helped guide the district during a challenging recession when district budgets were severely impacted. As part of their leadership, the district is now stronger both academically and financially. Their wealth of experience and guidance will be greatly missed.”

Both elected officials opted not to run to retain their seats. Their shoes will be filled by Mary Levesque and Michael Ray, who ran unopposed in the latest general election.

Duskin joined the board in 1999. During her time on the board, she served as president, vice president and legislative representative. She regularly volunteers at Arlington High and Presidents Elementary schools. She also hand-signed over 7,000 high school diplomas during that 20-year period.

Huleatt was elected in 2003. He served on various district committees, including the Byrnes Performing Arts Center Advisory Committee, the BPAC Executive Committee, the Career and Technical Education General Advisory Board, the Health Science Programs Advisory Board and the Community Truancy Board.
