Thank you Hank Wisniewski for 9 years of service!

At the May Board meeting, the Barrington 220 Educational Foundation Board of Trustees recognized and thanked Hank Wisniewski for his nine years of service. Hank was heavily involved with the development and success of the Business Incubator program at BHS and played a critical role when it restructured. We will miss Hank's leadership and wisdom on all topics and are grateful for his dedication to the Foundation.
