A Tribute to Lyme Central School Board President Gary Nicholson

The Town of Lyme has lost another very special member of the community. On June 14, 2018 Gary Nicholson lost his battle with cancer.


Gary had a long career in education as he began his career as an English teacher, then was a Secondary Principal and eventually a school Superintendent. Even after he retired Gary returned to the Lyme community and continued to be involved in education and in the local community.


He was a member of the F & AM Masonic Lodge in Chaumont, was active in the Chaumont Town Board and was the School Board President at Lyme Central School from 2004 until his death. Gary had a way of making every student and every person he met feel special. Gary’s philosophy was to always do what is best for students and he was a true role model to others.


He will truly be missed by the school community and the entire Town of Lyme. Continuing his love of education a scholarship in his name will be established at Lyme Central School.
