MILLBURN, NJ - Earlier this week, the Millburn Board of Education (BOE) took the chance to thank one of its current members who will not be returning next year.
John Westfall-Kwong participated in his final full board meeting on Monday. He had been selected by the BOE to fill an unexpired term back in January of this year.The territory is familiar ground, as he played the same role in 2013, before running for and winning a three-year term. Westfall-Kwong also served as the Millburn BOE president in 2015.
While he is finished with his duties on the general board, Westfall-Kwong will still have a few more committee meetings to attend.
Speaking with TAPinto after the meting, he said that being on the board with this group of board members during the corse of the year made his fill-in time on the board special.
"I think that's the best part of it all," Westfall-Kwong said. "It's just having such a wonderful group of committed board members that I'm working with. And the administration that's really just all out there for the students.
Westfall-Kwong was thanked by all of his fellow board members, who spoke about him in glowing terms. Dr. Christine Burton, Millburn Superintendent also had nothing but positive things to say about his tenure, and said that he brought a wealth of experience to the board.
