Hambright: Announcement from Dr. Egan

March 3, 2015


Dear Hambright families,


Earlier this morning, I announced to the Hambright staff that during the March 16th School Board Meeting, I will be recommended to fill the Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education in the Penn Manor School District.


This new appointment will be bitter-sweet for me.  Hambright has been my home for close to nine years.  The connections I’ve made with all of you and your children will be forever remembered.  However, I am not saying goodbye.  I am looking forward to serving the Penn Manor community in a different capacity.


Below is the statement Dr. Leichliter shared with the community this morning:


After completing the search for Assistant Superintendent for Elementary Education to replace Mrs. Vickie Hallock’s position due to her retirement, I am pleased to announce that Dr. Jerry Egan will be recommended to the School Board on March 16, 2015 for appointment to the position.

Jerry has been a teacher and administrator in Penn Manor since 1999.  He has served as an elementary and middle school teacher, Twilight alternative education instructor, middle school assistant principal, and elementary principal since August 2006 at Hambright Elementary. In addition, Jerry is a Penn Manor resident, has a wife who is an elementary teacher, and two sons who are both students at Eshleman Elementary.A special thank you to the following individuals who served on the interview panel for taking time out of their schedule to devote to this important interview process:

Mrs. Marilyn Springer (support staff), Mr. John Matusek (teaching staff/PMEA), Mrs. Donna Wert (school board), Mr. Joseph Fullerton (school board), Mrs. Shirley Murray (building principal), Mrs. Janine Hollinger (parent) ,Mr. Charlie Reisinger (district office), Mrs. Vickie Hallock (district office), Mr. Chris Johnston (district office), Dr. Cheryl Shaffer (district office), Dr. Theresa Kreider (district office)

Congratulations Dr. Egan!

I will keep you informed of information about how the school district is going to fill my position here at Hambright.
