Congratulations to Shari L. Camhi, superintendent of the Baldwin Union Free School District who was elected as the 2021-22 president-elect of AASA, The School Superintendents Association.

Domenech said “AASA is very proud of Shari Camhi and the work she has done to maintain the safety and welfare of the staff and students during this pandemic. It is with pleasure that I congratulate her as our next president-elect.”
