THORNDIKE — Following the February resignation of Chris Moreau, the athletic director for both Mount View Middle School and Mount View High School, the Mustangs did not have to search very long, or far, for Moreau’s replacement.
Presently, the athletic director’s responsibilities are being split between several RSU 3 administrators, including Mount View High School assistant principal Thomas Lynch.
The future of the position, however, is currently under review by the school district’s finance committee.
By next summer, the athletic director position may be combined with the high school’s assistant principal position, an idea the RSU 3 Finance Committee is mulling over while creating the budget for next school year. That budget will go before the school board, and voters, for consideration.
Nearby Belfast Area High School also combines its assistant principal and athletic director positions.
Moreau served as athletic director and/or assistant principal at Bayside (Florida), Winthrop, Livermore Falls, Sumner, Dexter, South Portland, Lisbon, Scarborough and Dirigo. He was the Mount View athletic director since the fall of 2016 and opted to reason in February for personal reasons.
Prior to accepting the assistant principal role in Thorndike, Lynch spent nearly 26 years as a teacher, athletic director, assistant principal and principal for Calasis Middle/High School.
This story, originally published March 13, has been updated and corrected to reflect new information from the RSU 3 finance committee.
