New Canaan Superintendent of Schools Mary Kolek will address the Senior Men's Club of New Canaan in Morrill Hall at St. Mark's Church on Sept. 21 at 10 a.m. She will present an update on the state of New Canaan public schools.

Kolek will describe the learning environment and programs that support "building character, competence and courage to change the world." She will also provide a glimpse into what is on the horizon for the next several years, as students prepare for the challenges of learning, serving, contributing and leading as members of a global community and marketplace.

On July 1, Kolek succeeded David Abbey as superintendent. Prior to her appointment in New Canaan, she was principal of Weston High School for six years.

The Senior Men's Club of New Canaan is open for new members. Applicants are welcome to attend this meeting. Visit for more information or call membership chairman Jerry Transue at 203-966-6050.
