State recognizes WHS for zero dropouts

WHS honored for graduation success

WINDHAM — The New Hampshire Department of Education is honoring Windham High for two consecutive years without dropouts. The department announced the honor this week.

“Very proud,” is how new Superintendent Winfried Feneberg reacted to the award.

Feneberg credited what he described as an enormous level of commitment by the faculty and administration to reach every student.

“We leave no opportunity for kids to drop between the cracks,” he said.

Feneberg, in his first year in Windham, said the award also was earned by his predecessors.

Feneberg, principal Ryan Kaplan and dean of guidance Julie Lichtmann attended a ceremony in Concord where Education Commissioner Virginia Barry recognized 38 New Hampshire schools for excellence.

“These awards would not be possible without the forward thinking of our New Hampshire educators and I am pleased to honor schools and districts that demonstrate innovative and successful education practices to support our students’ future,” Barry said.

“All across our state, our schools are working hard to prepare New Hampshire’s young people for bright futures and successful careers in the 21st century economy,” Gov. Maggie Hassan said.

Windham was the only school in the region to be honored.

Other department awards recognized schools for accomplishments ranging from innovative services to improving academics.
