Lenape Regional High School District Board of Education Welcomes New Shamong Representative
During its reorganization meeting on Jan. 2, the Lenape Regional High School District (LRHSD) Board of Education welcomed Samuel B. Green as the newly elected Shamong representative. Green, who has lived in Shamong for more than 16 years, took the oath of office to fill the spot vacated by the retiring Ted Shinske, who had served on the LRHSD Board of Education since 1997.
“Sam will be a great addition to our Board of Education,” said LRHSD Board President Margaret “Cookie” Estlow. “We know that Sam will bring excitement and enthusiasm to the role, especially since he is an alumnus of the school district and is engaged as a proud parent of Seneca students.”
Green is a 1985 graduate of Lenape High School. His daughter, Rachel, graduated from Seneca High School in 2018 and currently attends Rutgers University. His daughter, Lauren, is a junior at Seneca, and his son, Joshua, is a freshman. He and his wife, Kathleen, have enjoyed cheering their children on at football, swimming and volleyball events at Seneca.
A nationally certified Physician Assistant for more than 18 years, Green has worked with the Regional Orthopedic Professional Association in Cherry Hill and Washington Township, N.J., for nearly 11 years. He is a 2000 graduate of Hahnemann Medical College within the Drexel University College of Medicine. He began his post-secondary education at Burlington County College before transferring to Stockton University in Pomona, N.J., and then Hahnemann/Drexel.
“I am excited to join the school board to contribute to my community, my alma mater and my children’s school district,” said Green. “I value the combination of quality, caring teachers and great educational curriculum, including affordable CAP courses, made available to our students through Lenape Regional. I am grateful for the opportunity to give back to the district and help maintain its reputation for excellence.”
“Sam’s participation in our community engagement meeting, as part of the strategic planning process, demonstrates his commitment to our district’s strong future,” said LRHSD Superintendent Carol Birnbohm, Ed.D. “We are grateful he chose to serve our district and become a Board member.”
