Amy Smith steps in to be West Boylston High’s new athletic director

WEST BOYLSTON – Amy Smith, the longtime varsity football and basketball cheerleading coach, has been named the new West Boylston High School athletic director (AD).

Amy Smith, who is a special education teacher at the school, replaces Todd Smith, who recently resigned from the position. The two are not related.

When Todd Smith informed school principal Chris Fournier that he wanted to move away from the position, Fournier knew Amy Smith would be a good candidate for the job.

“After Todd (Smith) informed me that he didn’t want to do it anymore, Amy (Smith) came forward as someone interested in the position,” Fournier said. “Having worked with Amy for six years, she’s worked her way from being a classroom para-professional to a classroom teacher.

“She is just so well organized and articulate and is so good with the kids and parents, that when she approached me and said she was interested in being the AD, I knew she would be good at running the athletic department,” he said. “As football and basketball cheerleading coach, she was at most of the games anyway, and shadowed Todd this past year, so she could step right in.
