“I am honoured and grateful for the opportunity to join the leadership team at Eagle Butte High School. High school is a time where we see a shift in students as they change their focus from coming to school to learn, to exploring possibilities and opportunities that shape their futures. This is such a pivotal part of their education journey and I look forward to being able to help support and guide this process in my new role.” ~ Cathy Hynes
