Longtime Matthew Thornton principal to retire


“I’m going to miss that,” Mack said. “Over the years, I have been so fortunate to become part of these families.”

Londonderry superintendent Nate Greenberg said Mack will be missed.

“She’s an outstanding education leader,” Greenberg said. “She’s also been fantastic in generating a sense of community among the students, faculty and parents.”

Greenberg said Mack’s friendly style endears her to the Matthew Thornton family. She also has a strong sense of recognizing true academic leadership, he said, and what it takes to make a school work.

“It’s a beautiful blend,” he said. “And I’m going to miss her sense of humor, too.”

In 2010, Mack was named grand marshal for the town’s Old Home Day parade. The New Hampshire PTA named Mack its Administrator of the Year for 2012.

Mack’s husband, Andy, completely supports her decision to retire, she said. Through the years, he has been her strongest ally through all the training, educational studies and life moments.

“He’s been wonderful through all the changes,” she said. “We’ve worked on this together.”
