James Goetz, MD, a board-certified pediatrician, and Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatricians, was presented with the James C. Fallon Distinguished Service Award during the Dec. 5 Brockport Board of Education (BOE) meeting.

He currently practices as a Clinical Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Rochester Medical Center and Golisano Children’s Hospital and is the School Physician for the Brockport and Holley Central School Districts.


“The Board of Education and I are honored to extend our heartfelt appreciation to Dr. Goetz for his continued unwavering commitment and remarkable service throughout the years,” said Superintendent Sean C. Bruno. “Dr. Goetz has been a beacon of compassion, providing not just medical expertise but also a comforting presence that has touched the lives of countless students, staff, and families. His tireless efforts, professionalism, and genuine care continues to leave an indelible mark on our District."

The James C. Fallon Distinguished Service Award was established in honor of former Superintendent Fallon for his many years of faithful service to the District. Brockport’s BOE presents this award annually to a district student, employee or community member who demonstrates the following characteristics: confident, expert-level knowledge in a given field; wisdom, leading to effective judgement based in transparency and empathy; a commitment to the principles of servant leadership and individual empowerment; rigorous accountability to themselves and to the community, and humbleness.
