Minuteman High School Elects A New Superintendent

The Minuteman Regional Vocational Technical School Committee voted to appoint Dr. Kathleen A. Dawson as the new Superintendent-Director of the Minuteman Regional Vocational Technical School District. Dawson’s agreed upon 3 year long agreement is effective July 1st, 2022. Dr. Dawson will be succeeding Dr. Edward A. Bouquillon, who is retiring after 15 years of leading the Minuteman district (Acton, Arlington, Bolton, Concord, Dover, Lancaster, Lexington, Needham and Stowe).

Coming to Minuteman all the way from being Deputy Superintendent of the Orange County School District in North Carolina. She received her Master’s in Education in 2001 from Harvard University and her Ed.D from the University of Pennsylvania in 2015. Dawson grabbed the Committee’s attention with her vast career experiences and her creative approaches to build upon Minuteman’s mission to provide high-quality career and technical education.

We look forward to watching how Dr. Kathleen A. Dawson improves the district in the next 3 years!
