teacher and administrator Tim McGinty is announcing his candidacy for the
at-large seat on the Duneland School Board.
McGinty is a
lifelong resident of Duneland and a 1973 CHS graduate.
“After high school,
Tim proudly served in the United States Marine Corps,” according to a
statement released to the Chesterton Tribune after deadline on
Wednesday. “From 1980-95, Tim taught in the Duneland School Corporation. He
went on to become an administrator at Fegely Middle School and Union Center
Elementary School for the next eight years before returning to Duneland. In
2003, he became the principal at Westchester Intermediate School and served
in that role until 2009. Tim finished his career as an assistant principal
at Chesterton High School. He retired in 2012.
Tim has stayed active in the Duneland community by volunteering at many
school- and community-related events,” the statement said. “Tim has always
put kids first and serving on the School Board would be an extension of his
career objective to serve the community through the education of its youth.
“As a School Board
member, I will help form policy that supports the needs of the community,
our teachers, and mainly our students,” McGinty said. “In the end, what is
best for kids will always drive my opinions and decisions.”
McGinty has been
married for 38 years to his wife, Nancy, also a retired Duneland teacher.
Both of their children, Colleen and Clint, graduated from CHS.
