HUDSON: Doreen Osmun was unanimously approved as the new assistant superintendent for the Hudson City School District at Tuesday's Board of Education meeting.
She will receive a three-year contract, effective August 1, and her salary has been set at $119,700 annually.
Osmun will continue with her duties as director of curriculum and instruction as well as her new responsibilities.
Board members Gary Mushock and Patricia Engelman congratulated Osmun, but expressed concern that she was taking on a great deal of responsibility.
Osmun said her team is very supportive and would assist.
Newly appointed superintendent Phillip Herman said there may be changes and shifts in responsibilities as his administration transitions into their new roles.
Osmun has been in the educational field for 24 years, 17 of those in administrative positions. She is married and has three children, a senior in high school, a fifth-grader and a second-grader.
