The Charleston JCC would like to introduce President Nominee, Stewart Weinberg, Ph.D.

Dr. Weinberg retired to Charleston in 2012, after serving eight years as the superintendent of the Dallastown Area School District, and completing his role as president of the board of the York Jewish Community Center. Prior to coming to Dallastown, Dr. Weinberg served as the superintendent in Ladue, Missouri; Fairbanks, Alaska; and Lawrence, New York. Previous administrative positions included: assistant superintendent, high school principal, and high school and middle school assistant principal. Dr. Weinberg started his education career as a science teacher in the New York City schools.

As the superintendent in Dallastown, Dr. Weinberg guided the District through strategic plans that addressed curriculum, instruction, facilities, while increasing the level of student achievement. One of his major accomplishments was the development, building, and opening of the new intermediate school which radically changed education for kindergarten through grade eight.

Dr. Weinberg also believed that a superintendent must be involved in every aspect of the community. As a result of his participation in many education and community activities, Dr. Weinberg was the recipient of the: York County Chamber of Commerce Education Advocate of the Year, Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators’ Technology Superintendent of the year, Manufacturers’ Association Educator of the Year award, the New York State Art Superintendent of the Year, and the Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators Award for Instructional Leadership.

Dr. Weinberg served in leadership roles in a number of non-profit organizations in addition to the Jewish Community Center. These included: the William Goodling Regional Advanced Skills Learning Center, York County Economic Development Corporation, York County Chamber of Commerce, Susan Byrnes Health Education Center, Manufacturers’ Association of South Central Pennsylvania, and the National Manufacturers’ Association Educational Council. Dr. Weinberg earned his Master’s degree, and Ph.D from New York University in New York City.

Dr. Weinberg resides in Charleston, South Carolina with his wife of 45 years, Margaret. Dr. Weinberg and Margaret have two sons, Justin and Benjamin. Justin and Sara and the three grandchildren (Milo, Calder, and Zola) live in Columbia, South Carolina, and Benjamin resides in London.
