Commissioner Davy to Visit Evergreen Avenue School

The Acting Commissioner for the New Jersey Department of Education, Lucille Davy, will be visiting the Evergreen Avenue Elementary School next Wednesday, October 11. She will address the students during a brief assembly and then tour the building.

Davy was first appointed Acting Education Commissioner in 2005; previously she served as Special Counsel to the Governor on Education. She earned a J.D. from the University of Notre Dame Law School and a B.S. in mathematics from Seton Hall University. She lives in Pennington with her husband and two sons.

The Department of Education administers state and federal aid programs for public and non-public elementary and secondary school children and ensures that schools comply with all state and federal laws and regulations. The department also oversees student transportation and education programs for adults and persons who are disadvantaged, disabled or foreign-born.

We are excited to have the Commissioner join us. The students have been making various preparations, and there will be student performances to welcome Ms. Davy. We are sure that she will be impressed!
