The Sag Harbor School District Board of Education is pleased to announce that it has appointed Philip Kenter, Ed.D. as the district’s new school business administrator at its meeting on Dec. 4. He will officially take the helm on Jan. 16, 2018. “The district is pleased to welcome Dr. Kenter to Sag Harbor Schools,” said Superintendent of Schools, Katy Graves. “With the loss of Jennifer Buscemi, with all her expertise and knowledge around the district, I had so many concerns about replacing her, but I really feel the district has had a tremendous win in Philip Kenter’s decision to apply here at Sag Harbor Schools.” Prior to signing a four-year contract with Sag Harbor, Dr. Kenter served as a tenured school business official in the Tuckahoe Common School District. In this role, which he held since January 2014, he worked on several capital projects in addition to managing the finances of the district. Dr. Kenter also previously worked as an assistant superintendent for finance and administrative services in the Kings Park Central School District; the director of operations/assistant business official in the Miller Place School District; a business manager in the Bridgehampton School District; and as a part-time claims auditor in the Shelter Island Union Free School District. A resident of Riverhead, Dr. Kenter earned his Bachelor of Science degree in business and his Master of Professional Science in public service from Long Island University. His Master of Business Administration degree with an emphasis on finance and management and doctorate in educational administration are from Dowling College. Outside of work, Dr. Kenter is an Eagle Scout, a scoutmaster with his son’s Boy Scout Troop 94 and a volunteer firefighter in the Riverhead Fire Department. He has been married for over 30 years. “I am very excited to join the Sag Harbor School District. I am looking forward to working with the superintendent and the entire team, as well as the community,” said Dr. Kenter.
