Principal Phyllis Rizzi named statewide 'Administrator of the Year'
A veteran SWBOCES leader in special education has been honored by her peers across New York State for being among the best in her field. Phyllis Rizzi, principal at Tappan Hill School in Tarrytown, learned late last month in a letter from Regional Association of Supervisors & Administrators President Anthony Baxter that she had been named Administrator of the Year by the group’s parent organization, Empire State Association of Supervisors & Administrators.
“This well deserved acknowledgement is a tribute to the hard work you have expended over the years to ensure student and staff success,” Mr. Baxter wrote. Ms. Rizzi had an opportunity to express her gratitude recently at the regional group’s virtual meeting before addressing a statewide audience at ESSAA's Annual Gala on May 20 at the Sleepy Hollow Conference Center.
