Nolan brings a diverse background to his new role, including experience in law enforcement and elementary education, as well as having served as the district’s Tech Director for three years. He is in his fourth year at B.C. Cate and is also a member of the Montour Falls Village Board.

The board said that Nolan’s selection followed an “internal evaluation” of the district’s needs. The board’s decision reflects their confidence in Nolan’s capabilities to lead the district forward.
