The Geneva City School District has announced that its treasurer, Jesse Lambert, will step into the role of assistant superintendent of business and finance in December, succeeding Maureen Lee. Lee, who briefly came out of retirement in 2021 to serve as assistant superintendent, will transition to the role of grants coordinator.
Lambert brings a wealth of experience, having served as treasurer for Wayne Finger Lakes BOCES since 2019, overseeing finances for Geneva, Shortsville, and Red Creek. Additionally, she interned for Geneva’s Office of Business and Finance over the past year and previously worked as an auditor at the Raymond F Wager Division of Mengel Metzger & Barr. Superintendent Bo Wright commended Lambert’s deep familiarity with district finances and her established relationships within the district. Lambert expressed her commitment to upholding the financial integrity of the Geneva CSD.
Maureen Lee’s decision to remain with the district as grants coordinator will play a crucial role in Lambert’s transition and ensure continued support for student programs. Lee emphasized the importance of having a long-term school business official to navigate the district’s challenges and lauded Lambert as the right fit. Both Lambert and Lee are esteemed alumni of SUNY Brockport, with Lambert set to complete her Certificate of Advanced Study as a school district business leader this summer.
