Jimmy Farina says farewell to BOE
Farina retires after 36 years on Hoboken Board of Ed
If you were unable to attend this past week’s BOE meeting, James ““Jimmy” J. Farina retired from the Board after serving for 36 years on April 13, 2010.
During those years he was the elected NINE times and was President and Vice President of the BOE. He also was the Chairman of Athletics, in which “Jimmy” pioneered the efforts to rebuild the Hoboken High School Stadium making it the premier high school sports facility in the country.
Here are some photos of this past Tuesday’s BOE meeting. One of the Board Members Carmelo Garcia who sits next to Farina presented him a proclamation from Assemblyman Ruben Ramos and Senator Brian Stack to honor him for his “unparalleled service” and a “history of leadership.”
Thanks Jerry for the submission!
