The RSU2 Board of Directors is pleased to announce Tonya Arnold as our new superintendent, effective August 1st. Tonya recently finished a superintendent position with the Vinalhaven School District. Tonya brings to RSU2 over 20 years of teaching, administrative and superintendent knowledge, as well as experience in the corporate world and as a business owner. At the Maine Academy of Natural Sciences, Tonya led a proficiency and project-based school, and brings that leadership to support RSU2’s current staff of dedicated teachers and curriculum leaders. Tonya resides in Richmond with her husband, Steve. They have two adult children with families of their own. Over the next several weeks, Tonya will meet with Acting Superintendent Paine, RSU2 staff, students and families to get to know us all and learn more about what makes RSU2 great. Please join us in welcoming Tonya to our community. Sincerely, Jonathan Hamann Chair, RSU2 Board of Directors
