Mr. Shaun Boorom

Board member Shaun Boorom

Term Dates:  7/01/19 - 6/30/24
 
Mr. Shaun Boorom was born and raised in Binghamton and has lived in the Chenango Valley School District since 2001. His wife, Meca, is a 1998 graduate of Chenango Valley and they have three boys attending CV. Their oldest son Parker is a senior at the high school. He has been on the Varsity Bowling team since he was in 7th grade and already has multiple scholarships for college from bowling. Their middle child Carter is a sophmore at the high school and is also a member of the Warrior bowling team. He is also active in STEM programs whenever he gets the chance. Their youngest son Miles is in 3rd grade, attending Chenango Bridge Elementary. Miles is a Disney fanatic, and has created his own YouTube channel to assist other kids in their upcoming trips to Disney World.

Shaun graduated from Binghamton High School in 1997, attended college at both SUNY Morrisville and SUNY Broome and eventually followed in his father’s footsteps in the medical field.

Shaun is a former Corporate Account Manager at Modern Marketing Concepts, representing the worldwide medical company, KCI. In that role, he was in charge of more than 500 Skilled Nursing facilities across the country, working daily with Directors of Clinical Services, Chief Financial Officers, doctors and clinicians to help provide the best possible service to their patients. He was one of only two people in the company to ever become a Nationally Certified Inside Sales Professional and he has completed the Scotwork Negotiation Training program.

The last 2 years, Shaun has become medically retired,  after becoming disabled from a major infection after a bone marrow donation for his late father. Making the most of the situation, he is able to spend more time with his family and taking care of his home.

Shaun has donated six years of his time to molding young athletes’ minds as a coach for the Chenango Valley youth football program, including helping lead the ‘2015’ 7/8 year-olds to the district’s only “Super-bowl” championship.

Shaun’s background in corporate budgets, identifying the different needs of each individual, and compassion for those in need make him well suited for the job of board member. He has developed such a pride for this district and is driven to not only keeping community pride, but bolstering it. Shaun is most interested in working on ideas to better streamline communication between the district and parents and feels his background in working with people with varying concerns and ideas makes him the best fit for the Board of Education.

Mrs. Lindsey Holcomb

One of their daughters lives in Virginia, and five of their children are in, or will be entering, the Chenango Valley Central School District. Lindsey was born in California and spent most of her childhood on the West Coast. She met her husband Brian while he was in the United States Marine Corps stationed in Virginia.

She does not currently work outside of the home, but has been enjoying volunteering her time at multiple different levels. Lindsey had the opportunity to serve on the district’s Health and Wellness Committee for reopening Chenango Valley during the COVID-19 pandemic. Shortly afterwards, she was invited to be part of the district’s Health and Wellness Committee. She has coached civic soccer in Port Dickinson and helped during baseball when needed. Lindsey is also heavily involved in the community as a Den Leader and Assistant Cub Master for Cub Scouts Pack 155 in Chenango Bridge. In addition, she helps to plan hockey tournaments and events.

One of Lindsey’s biggest accomplishments is her family. As a member of the Chenango Valley Board of Education, she wants to make a difference in the community, in our schools, and with our students and families. Chenango Valley is home and having young children gives her the opportunity to stay involved for many years to come. She is excited for this opportunity to serve the community!

The students in Chenango Valley will become our future. It is so important we make the right decisions to help them on their path to greatness. We have some of the best teachers and the most dedicated staff. Lindsey looks forward to being even more involved!

Mrs. Kelly Warwick, President

 
Term Dates:  7/1/20 - 6/30/25
 
Mrs. Kelly Warwick graduated from Chenango Valley in 1989. She then attended SUNY Cortland and earned a B.S. in Political Science and Elementary Education. She went on to earn her Master’s in Special Education from Marywood University.

She and her husband Ron believe in this community and made the easy decision to purchase a home in the Chenango Valley District where they are raising their two daughters ~ Keira and Kaida.

Kelly taught for five years at the Children’s Home of Wyoming Conference and then accepted a position at the Windsor Central School District as a resource room teacher. She taught 7 years in the middle school and has now been at the high school for four. She is an active member of the Windsor Teacher’s Association and serves as their Treasurer.

Being an active community member is important to Kelly. She has been on the Port Dickinson PTA for years and has been the treasurer for the past three. She will help the organization transition to the combined Chenango Valley Elementary PTA. She has been a regular attendee at CV Board meetings and is thrilled to now be able to play a more active role in the decision making process.

Kelly understands that the people in this community are unique, but have similar value systems that stem from the belief that our children deserve the best educational experience possible. We prioritize fiscal responsibility and want our tax dollars spent, regardless if we have school-aged children, on sound programs that help our children grow ~ academically, socially, emotionally, physically, and artistically. We are passionate about ensuring that policies are implemented that will guarantee our kids will graduate with the skills and experiences needed to be successful in the ever-changing and competitive world we live.

The skills Kelly offers as a school board member come from being an educator, an active community member, a leader, a treasurer, a team player, a lifelong learner and a mom.

Mr. Scott Wilson

Board member Scott Wilson

Term Dates:  7/1/19 - 6/30/24
 
Mr. Scott Wilson was born and raised in Chenango Bridge by a CV alum! As a graduate of the Chenango Valley Class of 1992, he has a tremendous sense of pride in the district. Being a former CV student athlete spanning basketball, soccer, golf, track, and tennis he appreciates the balance required to succeed. Currently living in Chenango Bridge since 2001 with his wife Michelle (also a CV alum), all three of their children attend(ed) Chenango Valley and enjoy a mix of academics, music, athletics, and other clubs and experiences.

After graduating from Chenango Valley, he continued his education at Clarkson University and North Carolina State University earning a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. To further his professional development, he attended George Mason University and completed an executive program to obtain a Master of Business Administration. This has provided the basis for a career in business and technology. Currently, he is running a sales team in the northeast for World Wide Technology delivering advanced information technology solutions to major corporations.

Upon returning to the Binghamton area in 2001, Scott and Michelle chose to locate in the Chenango Valley district to afford their children the same experiences they enjoyed, including the pleasure of having many of the same teachers they had in school! As an active member of the community, Scott has been involved with Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts (a proud Eagle Scout parent), coaching soccer and basketball for civic teams as well at the YMCA and Greater Binghamton Sports Complex. His children participate in a number of activities including hockey, tennis, gymnastics, lacrosse, track and field, band, golf, Business Club, and Latin Club. Scott understands the busy lifestyle CV children and parents are balancing.

It is complicated to manage the well-being of our children, prepare them for the future, and do so in a fiscally responsible manner. We must strive for the best from each and every student, teacher, faculty and staff member, coach, and administrator to make Chenango Valley the best possible experience for everyone. Scott’s training and leadership experiences have culminated in an ability to be analytical and thoughtful in making complex business decisions that he feels would translate well to the School Board.

Scott is a passionate advocate of education to differentiate our students in an evolving global economy.
