Dick has been an educator for over 40 years, and currently serves as the Superintendent for the Upper Freehold Regional School District. He received B.A. and Masters degrees in education from Boston College, as well as a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University. Born in Middletown, Connecticut, he now resides in Newtown, Pennsylvania. He is a devoted husband and father of seven children. Having led the construction of several large school construction projects, including the recently completed $50+ million construction of Stonebridge Middle School in Allentown, New Jersey, Dick visited Malawi in August 2011 where he was able to witness the construction of a new primary school in Malawi, which will allow many kids in the nearby area to attend school for the very first time. Funds raised by students, teachers and administrators at Upper Freehold Regional School District have helped furnish the classrooms at this new school.
