The Board of School Trustees for Hamilton Southeastern Schools selected Dr. Yvonne Stokes to lead Hamilton Southeastern Schools, following the retirement of Dr. Allen Bourff.

The board chose Stokes after an extensive search that included community input and a thorough application process led by B.W.P. & Associates search firm. The process yielded a total of 25 candidates from throughout the United States. B.W.P. narrowed the initial interview list down to 12 candidates. The top six candidates were selected for board interviews.

“Dr. Stokes brings a wealth of experience to this role and will provide valuable leadership and strategic thinking to propel our students toward academic growth and success,” said Janet Pritchett, president of the Board of School Trustees.

Stokes, comes to HSE from the School Town of Munster, where she served as assistant superintendent.

A 2018 recipient of the Indiana Governor’s Award for Achievement in Education, Stokes emerged as the best choice to lead HSE into the future because of her comprehensive education experience, her collaborative approach to addressing challenges and her approachable communication style.

Prior to her four-year stint in Munster, Stokes worked in the associate superintendent’s department at Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS), where she served as an academic improvement officer. She provided oversight and evaluation of principals, schools and programs. She also helped implement curriculum, assessment and instructional programs.

Before joining IPS, Dr. Stokes served at Blackford County Schools, Marion Community Schools and Fort Wayne Community Schools in a variety of roles, including principal, assistant principal, special education services coordinator, director of curriculum and evaluation and teacher.

In 2013, she earned her doctorate in educational leadership from Purdue University, where she also holds an undergraduate degree. She also earned a master’s degree in special education from University of Saint Francis and a licensure in exceptional needs at Purdue University Calumet.
