You will see a new, but familiar face roaming the halls of St. John Bosco as its new principal. The school’s board of trustees and board of directors announced last Friday that they hired St. John Bosco alum Matthew Hanson as their principal effective July 1st. He will replace Vickie Dassler, who came into the fold at St. John Bosco in 2015.
Hanson brings experience to the role, serving as a teacher and an assistant principal in his previous stops during his career in education. Hanson said in a release from the school that St. John Bosco gave him a set of standards to live by, adding that he will “back (?) by giving myself fully to help students in their Catholic, social, physical, emotional and academic pursuits.” Aside from reintroducing himself to the community he grew up in, Hanson will be tasked with filling a number of roles on his new faculty. Hiring the new staff members will put Hanson’s wheels in motion before his official start date.
