NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. -- After a lengthy search, officials with the Oneida-Herkimer-Madison BOCES have appointed a new district superintendent and chief executive officer. 

Starting September 30, Dr. Patricia N. Kilburn, Ed.D will be serving in both roles. 

Since 2017, Kilburn has been the Superintendent of the Greater Johnstown Central School District in Fulton County. 

Kilburn has attended and received numerous degrees from SUNY Potsdam, The College of Saint Rose and Sage Graduate Schools. 

In a statement, Dr. Patricia Kilburn, Ed.D shows her gratitude for what this new opportunity entails. 

“I am truly excited to become part of the OHM family,” Dr. Kilburn said. “I am dedicated to providing opportunities for children to reach their full potential, and this is at the heart of what a BOCES does. Throughout the candidacy process, I met with cooperative board members, faculty, administrators and component school district superintendents who care deeply about their children and their communities. I am honored to serve them and our students as their district superintendent.” 

Kilburn will now be replacing previous Superintendent Howard D. Mettleman, who retired on June 30, 2018. 

The OHM BOCES is affiliated with 12 area, component school districts.
