A retired school superintendent--weary of the sameness of approaching his job in the traditional manner--dreamed of serving in an unlikely place.

She recently completed her first year as Aledo, TX ISD Superintendent. Dr. Bohn seems fearless, and upon “signing on” last year, she recognized the dynamism and potential of a community.
