OAKHURST — A successful search effort to identify and hire a new superintendent for the Yosemite Unified School District (YUSD) has concluded with the naming of Dr. C. Lynn Greenberg as the school system’s new leader.
YUSD Board of Trustees President Christine Wilder says a broad and impressive list of pertinent qualifications are the hallmark of Dr. Greenberg’s career, including having served as superintendent of the Coalinga-Huron Joint Unified School District. Dr. Greenberg also served as Chief Academic Officer of the Newark Unified School District. Additionally, she served as Associate Superintendent of the North Sacramento School District, and has had key administrative positions in the Putnam County Schools and at Lithia Springs High School in the state of Georgia.
“We know Dr. Greenberg’s experience and expertise will serve the District staff and students well,” Wilder says. “Notably, the depth of her resume includes specific experience in the key areas of school district finance and business affairs, marketing, technology, student learning and academic achievement, special education and human resources.”
A native of South Carolina where she earned degrees including a Doctor of Education from South Carolina State University, Dr. Greenberg prides herself on time spent over the years as a classroom teacher and site administrator, along with her experience at the District level.
“It is an honor to be entrusted and appointed as the Superintendent of Yosemite Unified School District,” says Greenberg. “It is a responsibility that I take very seriously. I look forward to becoming a part of the community, working with committed and caring educators, board members, and community members. I appreciate the confidence placed in me by the Board and the community as we work together to impact and make a difference in students’ lives.”
Dr. Greenberg is already engaged in working with YUSD leadership to ensure a smooth and productive transition period, President Wilder adds, and takes the position officially on July 1.
