BOE and Administration Honor Maria Benedetti for Service

The administration and Board of The Ewing Public Schools honored departing longtime Board member Maria Benedetti for many years of dedicated service.


M. Benedetti


Ms. Benedetti first served as a member of the Board of Education from April of 2003 to April of 2004. She was then elected to the Board in April of 2007 and has since served the community continuously, including stints as Board President, Vice President and as a member of many important committees. Always a proud Ewing Schools parent first, as both her children graduated Ewing High School, Ms. Benedetti was a strong advocate for the children of the district, and consistently promoted a whole child educational approach that was student-centered.


“During her time on the Board, we have seen significant accomplishments, up to and including the recent passing of our bond referendum,” Superintendent Michael Nitti commented. “Ms. Benedetti has played an important role in many of these achievements, and the school community is grateful and appreciative.”
