Kris Hoffman will be sorely missed at I.S.D. 166.
The hard working middle school/ high school counselor with the can-do attitude and warm smile announced he was leaving CCHS to accept a new position at Hutchinson High School.
His resignation came at the school board’s Thursday, April 19 meeting and was accepted with regrets.
Hoffman’s resignation will be effective June 30.
When Mr. Hoffman wasn’t applying his skills to his job he was often volunteering to assist with the Unified Club or to assist with a wrestling program. His dedication to helping students find scholarships and assist with their selection to college or vocational school was appreciated by many students and their parents.
In his letter to the school board Kris wrote, “It is time for me to move on and to continue to grow and develop in my career in education as I seek out new opportunities. I have been beyond blessed to have called Cook County my home for these last four years. Working with the dedicated staff is an honor that I will not soon forget.
“I do not know for sure what lies in front of me, but I do know that I will always have these four years of great memories with dedicated colleagues and administrators as my primary foundation of education. Words will never be able to express my gratitude for this community and helping me create a home in the wild North Woods.”
