Thompson recognizes retirement of Bald Area School District Superintendent Dan Fisher
February 7, 2013
Today I rise to congratulate Dan Fisher, the Superintendent for the Bald Eagle Area School District, in Centre County, Pa., on his upcoming retirement and for his 40 years of education service.
Dan Fisher began his education career at Bald Area School District as a teacher in 1973. I had the privilege of having Mr. Fisher as a teacher where I first learned the workings of government in a constitutional republic.
Dan later went on to become the assistant principal in 1982, the assistant superintendent in 1985, and the district superintendent in 1989, where he served for 23 years.
I have had the honor of serving on the Bald Eagle Area School Board with Mr. Fisher's leadership as Superintendent. Dan has been a visionary for education and improving educational outcomes.
Superintendent Fisher has tirelessly served as a leader in our community for the past 40 years.
Thank you, Dan, for being such a tireless advocate for our kids. Thank you for being a friend to me and also my family. I wish you the very best in your retirement. I yield back.
