“It has been a privilege to serve HHCS since the 1984-85 school year,” Gunnell said. “I am forever grateful to have had 35 years focused on improving outcomes for all students supported by a talented staff, supportive parents and community, and a dedicated Board of Education.”

The Montgomery County Educational Service Center, in conjunction with K-12 Business Consulting, will lead the process of selecting the next superintendent, district officials said. Updates on the hiring process will be posted on the HHCS website in the coming days and months.
