Praskach calls it quits, no one saying why

Just a semester after being named the new Castleton State College Public Safety Director, Thomas Praskach has resigned – and no one is saying why. Praskach, a retired New York City police officer living in Chester, N.Y., has been replaced by Bob Godlewski.

Godlewski, 52, was named as a replacement for Praskach on an interim basis, although he said he has hopes of becoming the full-time director in the future.

Before he took the job as director, Godlewski worked as a public safety officer and an assistant baseball coach here at the college.

Prior to coming to Castleton, he worked for three years as an athletic director and admissions recruiter for Columbia-Greene Community College in the Catskills in New York and as a private detective for 23 years

“I love it. I think it’s a great campus,” Godlewski said. “The students are great, the administration, everyone.”

Godlewski, along with student public safety officers, said they aren’t sure why Praskach left the job that he seemed so happy to take when school started last fall.

And several calls to Praskach’s home over the past four days have gone unreturned.

Praskach’s last day on the job was Feb. 17. Students and faculty were notified of his departure in a campus-wide e-mail.
