Aired January 19, 2023.
Dan Lee gave his last athletics update to the school committee on January 24, 2023, since he is leaving to go to Lincoln-Sudbury at the end of the school year.
Each session, the Needham School Committee hears from a department or school head to review the achievements of the past year, and prepare their budgets for the upcoming one. While all of these reviews are important, not all of them get to be poignant. The exception in this case came in the athletics department review by Dan Lee. He announced his departure from Needham earlier this month, and the school committee update was his chance to reflect on his time in Needham, and the pride he takes in his work here. Leaving is not going to be an easy move.
