Ritenour Administrator Receives Champion Award by PreventEd

Julie HahnJulie Hahn, Ritenour School District assistant superintendent for student services, interventions and assessment, received the 2021 Champion Award by PreventEd this spring.

The honor recognizes Hahn’s uncommon leadership in advocating for substance use prevention education. PreventEd, formerly known as the NCADA, recognized Hahn virtually this spring.

Hahn has focused her more than 30-year career in education on supporting the social-emotional and educational needs of diverse learners. In her current role in Ritenour, she coordinates programs and services that support the social-emotional needs of students by working with students and families in conjunction with counselors, social workers, interventionists, English language teachers and outside agencies.

Ritenour Superintendent Dr. Chris Kilbride said there’s no one more deserving than Hahn to be named a champion for students.

“Ms. Hahn’s humble servant leadership has led to many of our students and families receiving the services they need,” said Kilbride. “Her advocacy for our students at every level is evident in the work she does each day. She works tirelessly to help our district to keep focused on equity and inclusion for every student, every day.”
