Gretchen Hovey appointed to Eagle 久久热精品视频app School District Board of Education

The Edwards resident replaces former board president Michelle Stecher and will serve through November 2025

On Wednesday, March 27, Edwards resident Gretchen Hovey was sworn in as the newest member of the Eagle 久久热精品视频app School District Board of Education.

Hovey fills a vacancy left by former board president Michelle Stecher who stepped down from her seat in January. School board directors represent different geographic portions of Eagle 久久热精品视频app and a move across the valley left Stecher unable to continue serving in the seat.

Stecher, who also serves as the executive director of Mountain Youth, was named聽to the school board in 2018 and reelected聽in 2021. From 2021 to 2023, Stecher was聽appointed聽as the board president before being聽replaced by Dan Reynolds in December.



The search for a new board member began in February. Hovey was the only applicant and was interviewed Wednesday during the board’s afternoon work session and subsequently sworn in during the evening session.

Hovey has lived full-time in Eagle 久久热精品视频app since 2015. She currently lives in Edwards with her husband and daughter, Skadi. She previously started and owned Hovey & Harrison in Edwards, but sold her part of the business last year.

Hovey said she decided to run for school board because she saw it as “a good opportunity to give back to the community” and is a “believer in public education.”

“I’m really excited about it, and I have the time to do it,” she said.

Hovey’s appointment began immediately, with her joining the other school board members after swearing her oath of office on Wednesday. She will fill the district F seat 鈥 which encompasses portions of EagleVail and Avon 鈥 until the next regular school biennial election in November 2025. At that time, she could choose to run for reelection to the board.

Living and working in Eagle 久久热精品视频app, Hovey said she’s gotten to “know and love all different people within our community.”

“I think we have a very diverse community, and I hope that I can be able to listen and understand all the diverse needs going on,” she said. “Hopefully, I can use that information to make the best and most informed decisions.”

Additionally, she believes her expertise as an entrepreneur will serve her well in the role.

“There is a business side to being on the school board in terms of understanding the budget and everything. And so I can really understand that piece of it and maybe bring some creativity or creative insight to that side,” she said.

Still, Hovey expects there to be a big learning curve, especially coming in mid-term. But, it’s a challenge she’s ready to take on.

“I’m working hard to get caught up and gather as much information as I can and will go from there,” she said.

“I’m definitely approaching the position with rose-colored glasses. And I will do my best at the job,” Hovey said. “Everything I do, I do 110%, and this will be no different.”
