SOMERS, N.Y. – Robert Sweeney, a veteran guidance counselor with extensive experience in college admissions, will fill in next year as the director of guidance in Somers schools, replacing Dr. Deborah Hardy.
*** and ***
Hardy’s interim replacement, a retiree from the Mamaroneck school system, will not require Somers to make either health insurance payments or contributions to the state retirement plan.
Sweeney left Mamaroneck in 2014 after 26 years in guidance, then spent last year as Harrison High School’s interim guidance coordinator. In 1986, he completed a 14-year run as director of admissions for Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry.
A one-time teacher, Sweeney is a graduate of the University of Maryland with a bachelor of arts in English and of Manhattan College, where he earned his master’s degree in guidance and counseling. He has twice been president of the Westchester Putnam Rockland Guidance Association.
In the district’s email to parents, Sweeney was quoted as saying his appointment is “a wonderful opportunity for me to work with the dedicated faculty, students and parents of Somers. I look forward to building relationships and identifying ways we can support our community further.”
