OGDENSBURG -- Judy Green, a math teacher John F. Kennedy School Elementary School, was honored with an assortment of accolades to commend her 50 years of service to the Ogdensburg City School District at Monday’s Board of Education meeting.

Superintendent Timothy Vernsey also made it clear that Green will still continue to teach.

“Tonight, we decided to have a special presentation and this is sort of unique because this person has the longest standing tenure as a teacher, I think ever, in the Ogdensburg City School District and she’s still not retiring,” Vernsey said.

Green was given a Certificate of Achievement by Vernsey on behalf of St. Lawrence-Lewis BOCES District Superintendent Thomas Burns as well as a clock on behalf of the Board of Education.

“The inscription reads in celebration of 50 years of teaching, Ogdensburg City School District, Judy Green, June 18, 2018,” Vernsey said

A representative from State Senator Patty Ritchie’s office presented Green with a resolution passed by the New York State Senate thanking her for 50 years of service.

Regent Beverly Ouderkirk presented Green with a certificate on behalf of the New York State Board of Regents.

“Among the things I enjoy most about being a regent is visiting schools, celebrating student successes, and honoring those who have made a difference,” Ouderkirk said.

Green received a standing ovation from those attending the meeting.
