GOCSD congratulates Dr. Dennis Cooper on his retirement as Executive Director for #GOCSD. As one of the founding leaders of our unique educational service organization, he has provided 6 years of leadership. We thank him for his service.
We proudly welcome Dr. Pam Hedgpeth as GOCSD’s Executive Director beginning July 1. We are excited to have on-board this MO educator with 40+ years of experience, who currently supports school leaders across the nation.
When asked about her new role Dr. Hedgpeth shared, “It is such an honor to be able to serve the great schools of southwest Missouri through GOCSD! I am confident that many of the best educational systems in our state are right here in the Ozarks, and I am thankful for the opportunity to advocate for their important work. I have been blessed to have been an educator for many years and look forward to continuing to give back to my profession through helping facilitate the GOCSD mission of promoting collaboration and professional learning, for and among educators, to ensure that all students are provided optimal educational opportunities.”
