Current Hingham Public Schools Science Director Kathryn Roberts was recently named interim assistant superintendent. She will be stepping into the role formerly occupied by Asst. Supt. of Schools Jamie LaBillois, who resigned after accepting a position with the Brockton Public Schools as assistant superintendent of student support services.
The School Committee approved Roberts' appointment upon the recommendation of the new Supt. of Schools Dr. Margaret Adams.
Adams expressed appreciation for Roberts' willingness to serve in this capacity "during this year of transition" and said that she is highly respected among members of the school community.
Roberts, who has worked in the Hingham Public Schools for more than 20 years, was hired as a middle school science and math teacher and transitioned to a K-5 science specialist before being asked to serve as the K-12 Science Director.
