Message From Angie Hamberg

Dear Big Walnut Families,

I am writing to share that I will be resigning as superintendent at the end of this school year. For the past 13 years, I have been a part of the administrative team at Big Walnut, and I have served as superintendent for the past seven years.  

I am extremely proud of the work we have done during that time to continuously improve our district for our students. From implementing our academic vision, to passing ballot issues and opening buildings, I am grateful to have been part of such impactful work for our students and community.  I have never been a part of a more talented team, and I especially value the student-centered decisions we have made over the years.

I wish you all the best,

Angie Hamberg
