Goodbye, Mr. Dubik – a look back at superintendent’s 38-year career in education

In his 14 years in the Cazenovia Central School District — 10 of those as superintendent — Bob Dubik has achieved many successes, made institutional changes, passed 10 budgets, attended at least one event for every school sport and extracurricular activity offered and been a constant and visible participant in community organizations and events. “I’m a proud father,” Dubik said after ticking off the numerous accomplishments of Cazenovia students he has fostered and witnessed since he became superintendent in 2004. “I’m proud of everything, not just one thing that we’ve accomplished. … Certainly there are things I will miss, especially the kids — seeing them every day, getting hugs, cards, well-wishes from parents, the thank yous and appreciation from community members.” Last Saturday’s commencement ceremonies for the Cazenovia High School Class of 2014 were, in fact, Dubik’s last as superintendent. He retired on June 30, after a career of more than 30 years in education.
