Jack Hardy, the longtime Greely High athletic director, who has served as the assistant principal at Falmouth High since 2005, is returning to athletics and will be the new AD at North Yarmouth Academy effective July 15. Hardy’s son, Anthony, is a senior at NYA. Hardy replaces Mike Dutton.
“I’ve been looking forward to getting back into athletic administration and have considered it over the last few years,” Hardy said. “After seven years removed, I was ready. When I heard the position at NYA was open, knowing the experience my son and family have had there, I was excited to put my name in. I’m excited about the size of the school. I want the students and families in Falmouth to know how much I’ve enjoyed working with them.”
