Respected educator takes helm at Tinc Road

Scott Lipson has been named principal of Tinc Road Elementary School. He replaces Dr. Richard Fair, who recently retired after 21 years in the position.

“Scott is highly regarded as an instructional leader,” said Dr. Larrie Reynolds, superintendent of schools. “We’re lucky to have him and his expertise. Tinc Road has long been one of the crown jewels of the district. Scott has the right training, experience, and vision to continue the academic excellence and high-spirited school climate that Rick Fair engendered.”

Before coming to Mount Olive, Mr. Lipson served the Westfield school system as assistant principal at Franklin Elementary School. In addition to his responsibility for instructional leadership at Franklin, he also oversaw the district’s basic skills instruction and Title 1 programming. Prior to working as a school administrator, he taught fourth and fifth grade in Westfield for nine years.

“I am thrilled to be joining Mount Olive,” said Mr. Lipson. “The Tinc Road legacy built by Dr. Fair is incredibly impressive. I plan to carry on the strong traditions of the school and show my sincere respect for the faculty and staff who have worked so hard to make Tinc Road the school it is today. Having two small children of my own, I know the hopes and aspirations of parents. I promise to never underestimate what Tinc Road kids can do.”

Mr. Lipson, a resident of Clinton, New Jersey, holds two masters degrees from Rutgers – one in administration and supervision, the other in elementary education. He will officially assume leadership of Tinc Road later this summer.
