New schools chief worked his way up to leadership
4/27/18 (KISD newsletter)
Dream big, work hard and make it happen: That’s the mantra of Craig Hoekstra, a familiar face in the district, who this week was selected as the new superintendent.
Hoekstra is an example of turning that philosophy into reality. After deciding to leave his job as a linen delivery driver to pursue college, the 1990 Wyoming Park High School graduate worked as a night custodian at the former Newhall Junior High. He also took classes to get his associate’s degree at Grand Rapids Community College. From there he worked up the ranks as an educator and administrator, most recently as Wyoming’s associate superintendent for instructional services.
