Hancock schools select new superintendent


The Hancock Public Schools District has a permanent superintendent.

Chris Salani was chosen by the Board of Education this week. He has served as interim superintendent since August, when former superintendent Steve Patchin resigned. Salani says he plans to focus first on filling vacant high school principal and athletic director positions. He was born, raised, and educated in Hancock.

Officials say Salani was the only internal candidate for the job.
