May is School Board Recognition Month and an opportunity for local schools and communities to honor more than 2,000 locally elected school board members for their dedication to children and schools.
“Providing our community’s children with a sound education is the most important investment we can make,” said Wayne Kronemann, West Hancock Schools Superintendent. “We’re proud of our elected leaders in this community and want to thank them for their service. School Board Recognition Month is the time to say thank you and recognize their continuing commitment to our school.”
At West Hancock CSD, school board members develop policies and make decisions that impact the entire community. They are responsible for an annual budget of $12 million, 550students, 100 employees and three school buildings.
“School board members make critical decisions and oversee billions in educational expenditures,” Kronemann said. “They donate countless hours of personal time in service to Iowa students”.
The men and women serving West Hancock are; Ryan Johnson, Ryan Hiscocks, Jay Burgardt, Leah Deutsch, Jon Harle, Todd Hammer and Angie Johnson.
