WOODBRIDGE – Accomplishments from the re-opening of Woodbridge Middle School after renovations and the creation of the district’s first diversity and equity officer could not have been done without teamwork.

That is what outgoing Woodbridge Board of Education (BOE) President Frank Della Pietro III said in his remarks at the reorganization meeting on Jan. 7.

“Everyone from the bus drivers and teachers pulled together and went above and beyond,” he said, reflecting on the challenges of 2020 due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Board member Marie Anderson was selected to succeed Della Pietro III as school board president.

“Frank did a great job leading us through the challenges we faced during 2020,” she said.

Anderson said she looks forward to working with fellow board members and Schools Superintendent Robert Zega and his administration to move the district forward to provide an “outstanding well-rounded education to prepare all our students for college and the workforce.”

Board member Joseph Velez was selected to serve as board vice president.

During the re-organization meeting, Anderson, Della Pietro III and board member Brian Molnar were sworn in to the three available seats on the board. The three incumbents ran unopposed for the three-year term seats in the election on Nov. 3.
