MR. DOUGLAS HOOVER
Years on the WYASD Board of Directors: 4
What would you say the most important issue is before the Board right now?
The most important issue is giving the staff training and time to implement the myriad of great programs installed here in West York.
What would you like the community to know about the West York Area School District?
West York has been clamoring for change. Now it’s here and it’s not always as easy as we want.
It’s up to all of us to be patient, and up to Administration and the board to evaluate new programs and make changes when needed. The community needs to continue to voice their appreciation and concern. Together West York will continue to grow and improve.
What makes West York's mission, Every Student Every Day, powerful for you?
It’s a powerful vision because it’s student-centered; but, it’s up to the administration and staff to make the vision a reality.
Where do you see the District in 5 years,10 years, 20 years,
and how do you see your role on the Board as an integral part of this?
The board needs to keep a financial watch on the District and value all stakeholders in decisions.
Where might we find you on the weekend?
At West York band events, out in the backyard and doing work around the house.
What might people be surprised to know about you?
I host trivia nights around York County each week.
What is one piece of advice you would share with our High School seniors?
Ask for help. Tell people what you want. Treat others with respect. Realize that anyone can read your social media at any time, no matter how private you think it is.
What would you do even if you didn’t get paid to do it?
