The Edgemont School Board has announced the appointment of Victoria Kniewel as the new Superintendent of Schools, replacing Nancy Taddiken who will step down at the end of the school year. Good luck and best wishes to both! The town hopes that we will be able to continue to have a great relationship with the school district. We will do what we can to make the new Superintendent feel welcome.
