Ms. Hawthorne was appointed at the April 5 Board of Education meeting and will assume her new role on July 1, 2022, upon the retirement of PCSD’s current Assistant Superintendent for Business, Ms. Robin Zimmerman. Ms. Cynthia Hawthorne was raised by her father, who came to the United States from Jamaica to further his education. He spent the more significant portion of his life dedicated to education and service as a teacher in the New Jersey Public School System, his daughter's path has now continued his legacy. In a home full of love, and as the youngest of four children, Ms. Hawthorne and her brothers understood the importance of education, perseverance, and community. Notably, his life examples instilled in them the importance of leveraging resources and collaborating on care initiatives to benefit the community. In her career in education, Ms. Hawthorne is committed to similar pursuits. She hopes to provide the students of Peekskill with the resources and opportunities they require and that they deserve. Born and raised in the Bronx, New York, Ms. Hawthorne is a proud alumna of the New York City Public school system. She received a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Lehman College. After leaving Lehman, she worked at AT&T for several years and raised her four children with her husband. Later in life, Ms. Hawthorne returned to SUNY New Paltz to complete a Master's degree in Business Administration in 2011 and her Certificate of Advanced Studies in School District Business Leadership in 2013. In 2008, Ms. Hawthorne began her career in education at Dutchess BOCES as an Office Manager and later moved into the Business Office, serving as a Staff Specialist.
