Hudson Falls Middle School Principal Named “Principal of the Year”

Todd Gonyeau caps two decades at Hudson Falls with an award from CASDA

Mar 14, 2018 – Hudson Falls, N.Y. — Hudson Falls Middle School Principal Todd Gonyeau is going out with a bang – in his last year! Gonyeau will be recognized with a Principal of the Year Award from the Capital Area School Development Association (CASDA).

The award is given to principals each year in the Capital Region who display exemplary leadership. Gonyeau will accept the award at CASDA’s annual awards dinner in Albany on April 10.

During his 18 years as principal at Hudson Falls Middle School, Gonyeau has helped usher in many programs that benefited students. In the last five years alone, the middle school has implemented a 1:1 laptop program for all students, launched a makerspace attached to the library and helped boost attendance and passing rates for all grades.

“It was quite a shock to be chosen for this honor,” said Principal Todd Gonyeau. “I’m humbled, and have got to give a lot of credit to the rest of my team for helping carry out many of the programs over the years.”

Gonyeau was nominated for the award by Hudson Falls Superintendent Linda Goewey. “We have been so proud of the work that [Todd] has done over the last decade-plus at the middle school,” said Goewey. “I’m overjoyed that CASDA has chosen to recognize him as well. Not a bad retirement gift!”
