Salem, N.H

A longtime principal in the Salem school system, Corbin was the 2000 New Hampshire High School Principal of the Year and a finalist nationally.

The Windham resident later moved on to be the first principal at Nashua North High School in 2004.

As a principal, he fought for equity in sports between males and females. When the football boosters put lights on Salem’s Grant Field, Corbin allowed the field hockey team to play the first night game there.

Corbin and his wife of 44 years, Sandy, graduated from Keene State College in 1968.
