Mrs. Niamh Grano

I am a current Sparta Board of Education member, and the Vice President since 2021, who is seeking an additional three-year term in November. I have a BA in Mass Communications from Iona College and am currently employed as a Senior Communications Manager for Stryker. I have extensive experience working in marketing, public relations, media relations, brand messaging and communications in non-profit, corporate, and technology fields. In my professional career I am known for serving on teams that provide brand vision and communications strategies to high level leadership. In my current role, I handle crisis communications for the entire corporation and have extensive experience in advising other companies and brands in handling crisis communication. These skill sets have served me well during the past three years as a Sparta Board of Education member as I worked with many important stakeholders and other Board of Education trustees.

Experienced. Consistent. Dedicated.

Even prior to my service as a Board of Education member, I was volunteering in Sparta’s schools to create a home-school connection for my three children, Nicholas, Lilly, and Emma. I was the President of the Alpine School PTO from July 2017 to June 2020, and I also served as the Co-Vice President for Alpine’s PTO for two terms. I have experience as the Co-President of the Mohawk Avenue School PTO in addition to serving as the Co-Secretary for the Mohawk Avenue PTO.

I am a lifelong Sparta resident and am passionate about serving our community. I assumed my current Board seat in January of 2020 and helped the district to navigate uncharted territory during the pandemic. I wish to provide experience and consistency to the Board by continuing to help the Sparta Public Schools build on its successes.

I look forward to the opportunity to interact with and talk with as many Sparta stakeholders as possible during our upcoming events and beyond. I wish to thank the Spartan community for allowing me to serve the public for the past three years in this capacity, and I hope to be able to continue to do so!

We can't wait to meet you!

We will be informing the public about various events, meet-and-greets, and fundraisers over the next several months. We enthusiastically await the opportunity to meet as many community members as possible during this process and look forward to conversations about how Sparta Public Schools can continue to meet with success!
