Frank Vespe of Springs was proud when his 16-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, and her best friend, Elizabeth Walker, 15, of Montauk, put on a musical performance at a Levittown music store showcase. Proud enough, in fact, that he put a video of their performance of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are” and “Let It Be” by the Beatles on YouTube so his brother in Westchester could enjoy it too.
Gifts and hugs were doled out to Michael Hartner, the departing Springs superintendent, at Monday night’s school board meeting, but Kathee Burke Gonzalez, the board’s president, said that the new superintendent, who will be part-time, will not be named until the end of the week.
“Hopefully we will have a fully executed contract by then,” she said. The start date for both the new part-time superintendent and the new administrative position of assistant principal is July 2.
