It is with deep sadness that we acknowledge the passing of Dr. Betsy Webb.
Dr. Webb was a devoted leader and champion of educational excellence in Bangor and the State of Maine. “It is a blessing to be surrounded by so many caring and dedicated educators in the Bangor School Department who continue her aspirations for student success. One of her many legacies is to have hired and worked side by side with so many wonderful educators. Her impact is profound and lasting”, said James Tager, Superintendent of the Bangor School Department.
Dr. Webb believed that all students are capable of learning at high levels and that the key to their success is the acceleration of learning. She was a public educator for thirty eight years and served as the Superintendent of the Bangor School Department for thirteen of those years.
Her legacy will continue through the countless lives of students that she has touched. We extend our condolences to her family at this difficult time.
