Barnegat Board Salutes New Enshrinee Ribaudo

Barnegat — Last spring, the Barnegat Education Association established a new hall of fame to recognize faculty members for their “vital role in shaping the future of individuals and society.”

The inaugural six are Rosalind Ribaudo, Louise Muth, Cynthia Corle, Holly Carson, Frank Constantine and Joseph Papernik. Ribaudo was unable to attend the dedication, so the board of education invited her to attend a recent meeting where she received accolades.

From 1985 to 2006, Ribaudo served as assistant superintendent, director of curriculum and instruction, principal of the old Elizabeth Edwards Elementary School and supervisor of basic skills. The Barnegat High School National Honor Society is named in her honor.

“She was an integral part of many of the academic successes the Barnegat school district continues to exhibit,” it says on her inscription.

District Superintendent Brain Latwis said, “She served in various capacities and was a major factor in opening the high school. She was very much deserving of this honor.”

“She was assistant superintendent when I got on the board,” said board President Scott Sarno. “She had a good rapport with the board and the staff and accomplished a lot when she was here.”  —E.E.
