Ashby Award Winner - Medha Kirtane

The Ashby Award was established in 1966 to honor former Superintendent Lloyd W. Ashby and his wife, Lois, for their distinguished service to the community. The recipient is selected from nominees submitted by staff members and is someone who, in the opinion of his or her peers, has carried on our district’s long tradition of service and contribution. This is the highest honor that the Ridgewood Public Schools can bestow on a staff member.
The district named 
Medha Kirtane, Ridgewood High School Social Studies Teacher, as the recipient of this year's Ashby Award. Congratulations, Ms. Kirtane!
