The mission of the Owen D. Young Central School is to provide an excellent educational environment in which all students can achieve success and become contributing citizens.
The Owen D. Young School District is sad to inform our community of the loss of our Board of Education President Linda Tharp, who passed on Saturday, June 12th.
Mrs. Tharp began serving The Owen D. Young BOE in 2012 after a long career in education dedicated to children. Her number one priority was ensuring the district always had the children's needs at the forefront of every decision. She not only served on the ODY board of education but also the Herkimer BOCES board of education, for these same reasons. She had a great spirit and was always thinking of others over herself. She will be greatly missed by her ODY family.
The following letter is being sent home today with students.
