The Malverne Board of Education is thrilled to announce that our Superintendent of Schools Dr. James H. Hunderfund and community leader Charles Nanton have been chosen to receive awards at SCOPE Education Services’ 14th Annual School District Awards Dinner. Both were nominated for these awards by members of this Board of Education, and we are proud that they have been chosen by BOCES for their exemplary leadership and community service.

As you all know, Charles Nanton, or “Coach Nanton,” as he is known in the community, is one of the founding fathers of the Lakeview Youth Federation. An advocate for children and a leader in the community since the 1970s, he is someone who truly deserves our admiration and gratitude for all he has accomplished.

Dr. Hunderfund’s professional insight and vision, complemented by his personal integrity and commitment to higher standards for all children, have proven to be invaluable to our school community. Under his leadership, our district has obtained improved facilities, higher academic achievement, greater financial stability and success for all our children.

Coach Nanton and Dr. Hunderfund will be honored at a celebration at Villa Lombardi’s on March 23. Please join us in congratulating them on this honor.
