Holt, Michigan (WILX) – The The Holt Business Alliance congratulated Holt Public Schools Superintendent Dr. David Hornak and the district’s Secondary Education Program Director Lucas Schlauben for their efforts to support students and give back to their communities.
Hornak received the Ronald Van Ermen Legacy Award from the group at the January conference. The Alliance’s vice president, Pat Brown, noted Hornak’s unwavering leadership during difficult times over the past few years, including the COVID-19 pandemic.
