Hanover Central High School Principal, Mary Ann West, recognized Robert Krol, who has taught biology, AP Environmental Science and Physics for the past 38 years at Hanover Central. An educator for 41 years, Ms. West described Robert Krol as; “an exceptionally quiet and private man of very few words. He is a devoted father and husband. His infectious love for the environment and poetry was quickly felt by all of those who knew him,” she said. Mr. Krol was unable to attend the breakfast and next year, his absence in the hallways and classrooms of HCHS will be felt by teachers and students alike.
Tony Hiatt, Principal of Hanover Central Middle School brought the always smiling, Mrs. Wendy Obrenski to the front of the room. Mrs. Obrenski is retiring after 20 years with the Hanover Community School Corporation. “She has willingly changed her teaching assignment three times in the last four years to help us meet the needs of our students,” said Mr. Hiatt. “That is very commendable considering how many people would normally be reluctant to change their teaching assignment repeatedly as they approached the end of their career,” he added. In addition to her teaching talents, Mrs. Obrenski oversees the Middle School academic teams and personally coached the Spell Bowl and Science teams.
Jane Ball Elementary School will be missing two of its finest teachers in the fall; High Ability Math teacher, Bea Cak and 2nd Grade teacher, Cindy Gross. The dynamic duo has served Hanover elementary students for 37 years, the first 34 of which they both taught 2nd grade. “Four years ago Bea decided to try something new and took on the High Ability math program at Jane Ball. Not only has the program been extremely successful, Bea has spent the last three summers attending inquiry math workshops to continue to grow and learn new practices to apply to her teaching,” said Jane Ball Principal, Deborah Snedden. In lieu of her parting gift, Mrs. Cak donated the monetary value to the High Ability Math Program at Jane Ball. Mrs. Snedden described Cindy Gross’s classroom as “hyper organized and a place where students had high expectations and rigor in the classroom.” She also described what the two teachers look forward to the most, like shopping on weekdays, using years worth of Starbucks gift cards, filling out retirement papers on Google docs, and more. “At Jane Ball we will miss not just two great teachers, but two wonderful mentors, friends and nurturers.”
While Lincoln Elementary will not be losing any teachers to retirement, they will be losing a valuable asset in Assistant, Lynne Schulte. Ms. Schulte has been with the Hanover School Corporation for the past 11 years. “Lynne is extremely dedicated and always wanted to be sure everything at Lincoln was taken care of,” said Melissa Walley, Principal. “Lynne has done everything from supervising kids to making copies. She has handled bus duty, greeting students, and sending them off. Now it's her turn to take care of herself and her family. I hope that she is as cared for at home as we all have been at school. Thank you, Lynne.”
Administrators and colleagues also took some time to recognize those individuals with a decade or more of service. They touch every nook and cranny of our corporation and have worked tirelessly on behalf of our students. Congratulations to all and we hope to share many more years with all of you.

CELEBRATING COACH STEVE FOULDS
Below is a link to a fundraiser for the high school girls and boys cross country teams. While this event is a fundraiser, the true purpose is to honor and celebrate Steve Foulds. The 2016 cross country season will be his 30th season as head coach. Recognizing his commitment is not only important, but necessary. We have had other coaches here at Hanover Central who have dedicated a large part of their lives to their athletes and students, i.e. Carol Grady, Ann Thompson, Greg Whitacre, Bonnie Beamer, Janet Neitzel, and Chris York. Ideally, this race will be filled with cross country alumni from the past 30 years, but I know that other people would like to honor his commitment, too. For those who prefer not to register online they may do so by sending a check payable to Hanover Central Athletics. Please mail directly to Michelle Duffy, Hanover Central High School, 10120 W. 133rd, Cedar Lake, IN 46303. Please include a shirt size with your payment. If you do not intend to race, but would like to honor Couch Foulds, please email an RSVP to email@example.com.
