Hanover’s monthly meetings are valuable, convenient, and instructive. I gain wisdom and support from the field every time I join. To hear from authentic, humble, and successful superintendents is critical as we continue to "muddle through" this challenging time. We gain strength from collective commitment and communication about the challenges, solutions, and questions.

Dr. Mary Templeton, Superintendent, Washougal School District
