The Rural Educational Leaders Network is made possible through vision and generosity of Ms Ann Haggart. In addition to being a successful business woman, Ann was an educational leader in her own right; founding AGH Inc., a company dedicated to providing support services to special needs students. Through her work and pursuit of her passions, which included state and national politics, Ann identified a need for school and district leaders to have ongoing support for the development of their leadership practice and for their work developing and nurturing authentic and meaningful partnerships with communities.
Born from Ann’s vision, the mission of RELN is to develop and support a professional network for New Hampshire’s Rural School and District leaders. Our work as a network is focused by the overarching idea, College and Career Readiness: Developing the school and community partnership. Together we work as a professional network to develop partnerships between schools and communities that not only provide rich educational opportunities for students but benefit the economic future of our rural areas.
Because of Ann’s generosity and vision, membership and participation in RELN is free to all of New Hampshire’s Rural Principals, Assistant Principal, Superintendents, Assistant Superintendents and those aspiring to those positions.
