Interim GHS Headmaster Rick Piotrzkowski said, “Diane has strong leadership skills, unlimited energy and a passion for leading the Windrose Program. She is a creative problem solver, possesses a strong knowledge of the Greenwich community, and has a college and career-ready focus anchored in the Vision of the Graduate for Windrose students.”
