Skip Haile, president of the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District’s Board of Education, will be retiring from his post as of the close of the 2015-16 school year.

“He has been instrumental in establishing programs and scholarship, devoting countless hours working to improve the quality of our programs and has consistently supported and encouraged our students to raise the bar academically and artistically,” said Vice President Janet Goller at the June 1 board meeting.

Haile has served as a trustee, as well as president on the North Merrick School Board and the CHSD board for the past six years. He is an accomplished businessman, acclaimed soccer player and has been actively involved in Merrick PAL and a travel soccer board.

“Above all, he is a family man, demonstrating unwavering love and devotion to his wife, Sheila, and their two sons, Nick and Cole,” Goller added. “He will be greatly missed by the Bellmore-Merrick community.”
