Michael Dedrick

My name is Michael Dedrick. I am a lifelong resident of the Town of Catskill.  I graduated from Catskill High School in 1990.  I have been in law enforcement for 30 years.  I am retired from the Albany County Sheriff’s Office.  I also worked for the Catskill Police Department and the Athens Police Department.  I currently work part-time as a Police Officer for the Athens Police Department, and I work full-time as a Security Administrator for Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.  My wife is a teacher and works for the Catskill School District.  All three of our children attended Catskill School District where they received an excellent education by dedicated teachers.  I have experience as a school board member, having served on the BOE for three years from 2017-2020.  I am proud of the progress we made during my previous tenure on the BOE.  We achieved great progress for the district, the students, faculty and staff.  I would like this opportunity again to help make our school district the best it can be.  Our students, staff and community deserve nothing less than that.
