Governor's Distinguished Hoosier Award Winner

Tonight, at the East Allen County Schools Board of School Trustees meeting State Representative Dave Heine and Senator Tyler Johnson surprised and presented the Governor's Distinguished Hoosier Award to Superintendent Marilyn Hissong.  The Distinguished Hoosier has been awarded by Governors for more than fifty (50) years to recognize outstanding Indiana residents.  The Distinguished Hoosier is meant for those who distinguish themselves by significant contributions to their communities, and whose qualities and actions endear them in the hearts and minds of Hoosiers. 

Representative Heine stated, "Superintendent Hissong was very instrumental in getting the 'Transition to Teaching' program passed at State level.  She's respected by all of us down at the State. We are very proud of her and so glad she's our Superintendent."
