Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members,
Hello, I am Jeffrey Holbrook, the new Superintendent, and I would like to take the time to introduce myself to the district. I have been at Wynford Local Schools for the past 19 years serving in several capacities: Art teacher, yearbook advisor, basketball coach, football coach, strength and conditioning coach, junior high principal, and high school principal. I have served as Hopewell-Loudon Local Schools superintendent for the past three years.
I have been married to my wife, Abbi Holbrook for the past fourteen years. Abbi is an educational aide at Wynford Elementary in the preschool unit. We have two children, Cali, 12 years old and Sydney, 11 years old. Our girls love to read, play, compete in sports, and enjoy camping. We have two dogs, Harley and Doc. They both are high energy dogs that love to run and play. (destroy the house too!)
I enjoy college football, high school athletics, fishing, working out, finding ways to get better professionally, and spending time with my family and close friends. As a family, we like to go camping to spend quality time together. Another pastime is reading. I read many different types of books, but history is one of my favorites. I am an avid Ohio State football fan and I cannot wait for fall. I will attend most of our events here at Mohawk to support our kids and watch some of the best and most pure competition one can find. Football season brings me one memory that I truly love, the drum line! The drums on a Friday night, as well as the band, brings back so many great memories for me from days long gone……. The crossfit/weightlifting workouts help me keep a high energy level and mental focus throughout the day. I enjoy talking to various people in the educational profession. I have watched Jon Gordon, Urban Meyer, Tim Kight, Simon Sinek, James Bird Guess, Jacko Willink, and Doc Ballard, Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, all to gain perspective.
One item that people find odd about me is the fact that I do not watch TV for the most part. I watch all the college football I can, but other than that, I tend to read and research. It is relaxing and educational all in one.
I will have individual times available to meet with community members so we can get to know one another. If you are interested in talking one-on-one, I would encourage you to call Jenna Molyet at 419/927-2414 for my availability and set a time and a date. I am truly excited for the opportunity to lead such a great district!
Jeffrey A. Holbrook
