The key to a thriving community like Hopkinton is found in the willingness of citizens to volunteer for committees and to serve as elected officials. Jean Bertschmann exemplifies that spirit and we are fortunate to have had her expertise and conscientiousness as a member of the School Committee since 2009. During that time, Jean has worked collaboratively with her fellow committee members, other town boards, and parents to enhance the system for all students.
