New Brick Schools Super to be Introduced
Official intro will come at Thursday's regular meeting
Dr. Walter Uszenski will make his formal Brick debut this week.
The township resident, who has been selected as the Brick school district's new superintendent, will be introduced to the community at Thursday's regular meeting of the township Board of Education.
Uszenski, 60, currently serves as superintendent of the Spotswood school district in Middlesex County. He was appointed superintendent in Brick late last month. He will officially take over in Brick Aug. 1.
In a brief interview with Brick Patch the night he was appointed, Uszenski said his specialities have been in the areas of curriculum and community outreach.
"My dream has always been to have my capstone. I've felt that being a Brick leader would be my dream come true," he said.
Uszenski will replace current Superintendent Walter Hrycenko, who will revert to the position of assistant superintendent, the last position in which he holds tenure. The current assistant superintendent, Patricia Lorusso, will be bumped to the position of principal, her last tenured position.
Uszenski's four-year contract in Brick calls for him to earn $175,000 per year, the maximum allowed under state law for a district Brick's size.
Thursday's meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of Brick Township High School.
