District mourns loss of longtime Board Clerk, Dot Wilson

on February 11, 2015

Members of the Warwick Valley Central School District were saddened to learn of the recent passing of the district’s longtime Board Clerk, Dorothy Wilson.

Dorothy, known to all as Dot, was an integral part of the district for many years. A lifelong Warwick resident, she graduated in the Warwick High School Class of 1938.

After graduation, Dot began working in the Warwick School District. She spent a few years helping with the war effort during WWII, and returned in 1946 to begin a long career as the Warwick Board Clerk. She held this position through the tenure of several Superintendents, and to many district employees and community members, she was “the face of the Warwick School District.”

Dot formally retired in 2010 as Clerk of the School Board and the Secretary to the Superintendent, but continued to come in to work on special projects several afternoons a week for another year or so.

When the new wing adjacent to the Middle School was converted to the District Office in 2000, WVCSD honored Dot by formally naming the District Office the “Dorothy C. Wilson Education Center.”

During her long career in the Warwick School District, Dot was trustworthy and conscientious, paid great attention to detail and was completely loyal to the district. Her dedication to our district for an incredible 66 years is truly impressive.

She will be missed.
