At a recent meeting of the Babylon Town Board, Supervisor Rich Schaffer, Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez, and the entire board gathered to recognize and proclaim a day in celebration of Lindenhurst Public Schools Superintendent Daniel Giordano.
Following 24 years of service to the families and children of the Lindenhurst Union Free School District, Mr. Giordano is set to retire at the end of June. His career in Lindenhurst began in 1997 when he was hired as an assistant principal at Lindenhurst High School. In 2002, he became the high school building principal and served in that role until 2014 when the Board of Education unanimously appointed him superintendent of schools. As superintendent, he has overseen the implementation of significant advancements in the district that have consciously improved services and advanced the rates of student success.
“I cannot say enough about what an asset Mr. Giordano has been to our community,” said Supervisor Rich Schaffer. “Throughout his tenure, he has served as an excellent example not only teachers and administrators in the Lindenhurst School District, but too many in other school districts throughout our area. I know I speak for many when I say his guidance and leadership will be greatly missed.”
Councilman Anthony Manetta, a Lindenhurst high school graduate who was a student during Mr. Giordano’s tenure as assistant principal, presented the proclamation on behalf of the board. The proclamation recognizes Mr. Giordano decades of service and proclaims that the last day of the school year, June 24, 2022, will be Daniel Giordano Day in the Town of Babylon.
The Town of Babylon wishes Mr. Giordano all the best in his retirement, and we thank him for his many years of service to the Lindenhurst community.
