Mr. Steve Carr


Term Dates:  7/01/14 - 6/30/19
 
Mr. Carr has lived in the Chenango Valley School District for over 24 years. He and his wife Pam have four children: two who have graduated from CV and two still in the district.  

Mr. Carr is a graduate of Oswego State College with a degree in business administration, and he works in the insurance and financial services business.
He is an owner of PRL Associates in Endicott. His wife is a teacher in a neighboring district. He has been involved in various organizations through the years, including coaching baseball and softball, working with the Boy Scouts and serving on the Chenango Bridge Community Association.

Most recently, he served on the committee to study the potential merger with the Chenango Forks district.  Serving on this committee helped him understand the challenges that we will face as a school district in the coming years, now that it has been decided not to merge.  Being married to a teacher gives him an understanding of the challenges our educators are facing with the new Common Core standards now in place in New York State.

As we go forward and face these challenges, Mr. Carr believes it is more important than ever to have a board of education with an open, transparent relationship with the community.  An informed community and informed parents can help our district move in a positive direction.
 
 

Mrs. Casey Egan Doyle, Vice President

 
Term Dates: 7/01/16 - 6/30/21
 
Casey Egan Doyle is a graduate of CV.  When she and her husband Patrick and I settled back in Binghamton, they decided to buy a house in the Chenango Valley District so their children could experience the quality, small school education that Casey received. Their daughter Mary Katherine is in middle school. She is active in dance and is an altar server at St. Francis of Assisi. Their son Michael attends Chenango Bridge and was a member of the 7-8 football team that won the “Super Bowl” last fall.

Mrs. Doyle graduated from Chenango Valley in 1991, received a B.A. from Colgate University, a J.D. from Syracuse University College of Law and a Master's Degree in Elementary and Special Education from Binghamton University.

She is currently a Confidential Law Clerk for a New York State Supreme Court Justice. For more than ten years she practiced law at a firm in Binghamton and specialized in commercial litigation and labor and employment law. She also recently worked as an assistant to the Project Manager for New York State’s Social Studies Toolkit Project- the State’s effort to construct a “toolkit” for teachers to use to teach college, career and civic life skills. She has served on the boards of The Family and Children’s Society and The Girl Scouts - Indian Hills Council.

During the past school year she has been a community member of the Board’s policy committee. Through reviewing CV’s policies and talking with board members, administrators and teachers she has gained an understanding of the District’s strengths. As a board member she wants to work to furnish our teachers with the tools they need to provide high quality instruction while maintaining fiscal responsibility in our challenging economic times. She looks forward to working collaboratively with board members, administrators, teachers and the community to ensure Chenango Valley students are well prepared for the challenges they will face and are able to be successful adults.

Her background in advising clients, identifying needs and developing solutions to problems makes her well suited for the job of a board member. The CV District is a great fit for her family and she wants to make sure it is the best fit for all families in our district by serving as a member of the Board of Education.

Mr. Stuart Elliott

Term Dates: 7/01/2018 - 6/30/2023

Mr. Stuart Elliott was first elected to the board in May 2008 and was re-elected in 2013 and 2018. During his time on the board, he has gone from BOE member to committee member, to committee chairman, to vice-president and president.


Mr. Elliott is currently beginning his 38th year as an educator; the last 35 years as a social studies teacher at Windsor Middle School.  He has enjoyed coaching many athletic teams in football, basketball, cross-country, and indoor/outdoor track, as well as JV basketball and modified football here at CV. He also leads a consulting firm which helps NYS school districts align their social studies curricula to NYS standards.

As a lifelong Binghamton resident, he graduated from CV in 1972.  He earned his B.A. degree in political science from SUNY Binghamton and M.A. degree in American history education from the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, VA.  Back in the late 1970's, Mr. Elliott student-taught at CV under the tutelage of such notables as Mr. Donald Benz and Mr. William Weckel.  He has been ever grateful for their guidance and encouragement.

Stuart and his wife Patricia have lived in Chenango Bridge since 1992. They have four children. The oldest, Abbie, recently graduated cum laud from Binghamton University. She was accepted into the highly competitive “Teach for America” program where she was assigned to an urban elementary school in inner city Memphis, TN. After a two year stint, she is now teaching in a private school in Fort Collins, CO. Their second daughter, Hannah, graduated from CV as the salutatorian of the Class of 2014. She is now entering her junior year at Binghamton University as an anthropology/archeology major.  Son Ethan is a freshman at Binghamton University's Watson School of Engineering studying computer science. Their youngest Gracie will be a ninth-grader. All of the Elliott children have been active participants who have enthusiastically contributed whatever skills they may possess to the greater success of Warrior athletic teams, musical groups, and service organizations.

Anybody who knows Mr. Elliott has seen him at all kinds of CV events, athletic contests, concerts, plays, etc. “I am convinced that a board of education member should be fully engaged with the school community. Since the beginning, I have continued to build relationships with teachers, administrators, students, parents, and other key community partners. Showing up once a month to a board of education meeting simply doesn’t ‘cut it’ with me. This job means so much more.”  Improving school programs while maintaining a sound budget and rational tax rate have always been a priority for Mr. Elliott during his nine years on the board.

So please don’t hesitate to strike up a conversation with him or ask a question. You will see that he is fully devoted to the educational welfare of the children of the CV district. “That’s why I’m here! Thank you all and let’s not be strangers!”

Mrs. Christine Lomonaco

Christine Lomonaco grew up in Hillcrest, graduated from Chenango Valley in 1983, and went on to study at BCC. She currently lives in Port Dickinson with her husband Vince, also a CV graduate, and their two children Dominick and Logan. 

Since 1991, her employment has been in education. First, for the Union-Endicott School District as a secretary in the special education and then the superintendent’s office. In 1994 she began employment with Broome-Tioga BOCES as a building secretary and has spent the last four years working for the assistant superintendent managing the professional development and teacher evaluation system.

Chris is excited to become part of the Chenango Valley Board of Education. She believes her dedication to our district, ability to work as a team player, and her organizational skills can be a great resource. She served as a member of the CV-CF merger committee and gained a deeper understanding of the budget process and management of our school district. While serving on that committee, she first became interested in running for a school board position.

In addition to raising a family and working full-time, she actively participates in our community. She is the secretary for the Port Dickinson Community Association, has assisted my husband in coaching various civic sport teams for the last several years, has been a director and most recently the secretary for BOCES Support Services Association, an organizer of the combined civic Summer Fun committee, and helps organize combined civic events. 

She is proud to call herself a CV graduate! She has high expectations and will work hard to be her best personally and professionally. You can trust her to support fellow board members, students, staff, and our community. Please feel free to contact her anytime should you have a concern, comment, or compliment for our board and school district.

Mrs. Michelle Porterfield Wilson

Board member Michelle Wilson
mwilson@cvcsd.stier.org

Term Dates:  7/1/14 - 6/30/19
 
In 2001, Mrs. Wilson and her husband Scott moved back to their hometown of Chenango Bridge.  Both are CVHS graduates and wanted to raise their three children, Carter (13), Nolan (12), and Adelie (8) in the district.

After graduating from Chenango Valley, Mrs. Wilson studied civil engineering at Johns Hopkins University, receiving her Bachelor and Master of Science degrees.  She stayed at Hopkins to continue doctoral studies, conduct research, teach and consult for the National Research Council in Washington, D.C.  

Through raising her children, she has had the opportunity to become involved in their schools and organizations.  She has been an active member of the community, serving on the board of directors of the Chenango Valley Nursery School for seven years.  She was a Cub Scout leader for five years and also coached youth sports.  She continues to be involved in Scouts and her children's sports.

Mrs. Wilson recognizes that today our community faces many challenges.  Teachers and students are feeling the pressure from new educational standards and testing, and schools continue to have budget constraints.  Many community residents are facing tough economic times.  She believes it is important for the board of education to find balance between meeting the needs of our students and teachers, while minimizing the tax burden on our residents.  By being creative, we can continue to offer our students and teachers the resources and opportunities necessary for a well-rounded education, while not placing unnecessary strain on taxpayers.

With children in three different CV schools, she is very aware of many of the concerns district parents, teachers and students face.  Her parents and husband's parents are retired and live in the district, giving her insight into the concerns of taxpayers on fixed incomes.

Mrs. Kelly Warwick, President

 
Term Dates:  7/1/15 - 6/30/20
 
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.

Mrs. Warwick 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 Mrs. Warwick. 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.

Mrs. Warwick 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 Mrs. Warwick 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.
