New Principal Selected for Warren Street

The Greater Johnstown School District Board of Education is pleased to announce the appointment of Nicole Lent as the principal for Warren Street Elementary School. She has most recently served as the assistant principal at the Gloversville Middle School.

Mrs. Lent is replacing R. Scott Ziomek, who has served as the principal at Warren Street Elementary since 2009. He has accepted a position as the assistant principal for Schalmont Middle School in Schenectady.

Prior to her 2011 administrative appointment at Gloversville, Mrs. Lent served as an elementary teacher in the Northville School District, teaching Grades 1, 2 and 4 for nearly ten years. She also taught special education in the Mayfield Central School District and at Maple Avenue Middle School in Saratoga.

Mrs. Lent earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology at SUNY Cortland, a Master of Science Degree in Special Education at Russell Sage Graduate School, and Administrative Certification through the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.

The Johnstown Board of Education approved Mrs. Lent’s appointment at their business meeting on September 11. A search committee, composed of board members, administrators, faculty and parents, assisted in interviewing candidates for the position and recommended Mrs. Lent as one of two finalists for consideration. The Board of Education believes she is a great fit for Warren Street School and the Greater Johnstown School District.

Mrs. Lent and her family reside in Fulton County. She will begin her tenure in Johnstown on October 14, 2014.
