During his Greenwood Lake tenure, his responsibilities included enforcing the school’s Code of Conduct; working closely with school staff to maintain student behavioral and general well-being; overseeing instructional goals and strategy meetings; creating and implementing physical education curriculum; and managing the athletic department budget and all related athletic program activities and responsibilities.

Mr. Radon earned his advanced certificate in educational leadership from SUNY/Stony Brook University and his master’s degree in PreK-12 Health from CUNY/Lehman College in the Bronx. He earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Coastal Carolina University in Conway, South Carolina.
