Thomas Hanson named new MVROP Superintendent
Submitted By Allison Aldinger
After Mission Valley Regional Occupational Program (MVROP) Superintendent Pete Murchison announced his plans to retire at the end of the school year, the MVROP Governing Council commenced its search for the next superintendent. The Governing Council is pleased to announce that Thomas Hanson will be the next Mission Valley ROP Superintendent.
Tom possesses an excellent blend of administrative experience in traditional high school and ROP curriculums. He started his teaching career in the classroom in 1993 as a mathematics instructor at the secondary level and has been Principal at John F. Kennedy High School for the past seven years and a high school administrator for the past fourteen years.
Tom's passion for Career Technical Education is reflected in the numerous, diverse and successful CTE programs developed and expanded while he was Principal at Kennedy. His collaborative style and approach with staff, parents, students and the community has contributed to Kennedy becoming a model Mission Valley ROP partner school. In addition, Tom's dedication to students has resulted in continuous increases in test scores, robust course offerings and sustainable outside-of-the-box educational programs.
Mission Valley ROP looks forward to a seamless transition and a continuation of effective and relevant leadership as Tom Hanson becomes MVROP Superintendent effective July 1.
