RAWSON — Cory-Rawson Superintendent Bob Hlasko is resigning, effective July 31, to become the deputy superintendent of the Educational Service Center of Medina County.

“Medina is where both my wife and I grew up and we still have family in the area. It’s a bittersweet move for our family, as I’ve absolutely loved my time at Cory-Rawson. I’ve been very blessed to be a part of the Hornet family for 15 years,” Hlasko said in an email on Thursday.

“At the same time I’m very excited to be closer to family and to start work with another excellent organization in the Medina County ESC.”

Hlasko was named superintendent in 2011. He was previously the middle school principal and transportation supervisor, and the dean of students and assistant athletic director at Cory-Rawson High School. He had also been a high school history teacher.

The Cory-Rawson school board accepted his resignation Wednesday evening.

“I’m leaving Cory-Rawson in a good place — we’re financially sound, we’ve assembled an outstanding team of staff and administration, and the board is focused on ensuring we continue the path to excellence that we’ve set before us.

“Even though I’ll be on the other side of the state, I’ll always have the Green and Gold in my heart,” Hlasko wrote Thursday.
