Eatonville High School teacher Tira Hancock has been inducted into the Washington Activity Coordinators Association Hall of Fame.
The Washington Activity Coordinators Association established the Hall of Fame in 2002 to honor individuals who have made a significant, lasting impact on student activities in the state of Washington.
Dr. Hancock, like all recipients of this award, has demonstrated leadership and dedication to providing high quality student leadership programs at the school, district and state level. She has been the ASB advisor at EHS for more than 20 years and was a member of the WACA board for several years, serving in a variety of elected roles. In addition, she is the assistant director of Mount Rainier Leadership camp at Camp Cispus and has supported student leadership camps for over 20 years.
Dr. Hancock was nominated for the Hall of Fame by one of the EHS student leaders in recognition of the commitment and care she shows her students.
Dr. Hancock was surprised at the Feb. 8 staff meeting by WACA representatives Kacie Solar and Michael Sniezak. She will also be recognized at the state WACA convention in March. During the ceremony, the WACA team plans to play a video montage to highlight the significant impact Dr. Hancock has had through her involvement in student leadership and activities.
