Freeport High School NJROTC bids farewell to superintendent

On July 2, the Freeport High School Navy JROTC honored Freeport Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kishore Kuncham with a traditional Navy paddle as a heartfelt goodbye upon his retirement and deep appreciation for his years of dedicated service to Freeport Public Schools.  

The paddle, inscribed with “Fair Winds and Following Seas,” is a naval tradition that signifies gratitude and respect for those who have made significant contributions during their tenure.    

“Dr. Kuncham has been an integral part of Freeport Public Schools, leading with vision and compassion,” said Chief Petty Officer Louis Lopez. “His leadership has left a lasting impact on students, staff and the entire Freeport community, so the traditional paddle is a fitting gift to wish him well in his retirement.”   

“I am deeply touched by this gesture,” said Dr. Kuncham. “Serving as the Superintendent of Freeport Public Schools has been one of the greatest honors of my life. I have always said if I could go back to high school, I would join the NJROTC because I believe it is such an important part of learning. I will cherish this and the memories I have made with the cadets and commanders throughout the years.”   

As Dr. Kuncham prepares to retire in August 2024, the community reflects on his legacy and the positive changes he has implemented throughout his years of service.
