Dr. Kevin McGowan has been the Superintendent of the Brighton Central School District since 2009. He began his career as an elementary teacher in the Starpoint Central School District before becoming a high school assistant principal at Iroquois High School and then an elementary principal at Wales Primary School. Prior to Brighton, Kevin was the Superintendent of the Warsaw Central School District in Wyoming County. He has had the great gift and honor of working in rural and suburban settings and facilitating the development of curricular and financial solutions where capacity was at all ends of the spectrum.
While visiting a refugee camp in Thailand as a teenager, Kyle discovered his lifelong passion for making a meaningful difference in the world around him. After building a career in politics as a strategist, front-line communicator, advocate, and grassroots leader, Kyle has transitioned into Thoughtexchange, where he wholeheartedly believes that a single idea can make a world of a difference. When he is not out exploring the world with his young family (there’s a lot to see out there!), Kyle is probably reading, writing, volunteering, or enjoying the outdoors on his own.
