Mr. Hoekstra began his role as Superintendent on July 1, 2018 following the retirement of long time WPS Superintendent, Dr. Thomas Reeder.  Mr. Hoekstra has spent 27 years in Wyoming Public Schools, first as a student, then a custodian, teacher, principal, and most recently, has served as the WPS Assistant Superintendent for Instructional Services (2015-2018).  He also spent three years at Hamilton Community Schools as Principal and Director of Instruction before returning to Wyoming Public Schools in 2012.


Mr. Hoekstra obtained his Master of the Arts degree in Educational Leadership and his Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Grand Valley State University.  He also holds a Michigan School Administrator Certificate in Elementary & Secondary Admin K-12 as well as a Professional Education Certificate.

“I am very excited to lead this great school district. A district that I hold dearly as a proud graduate,” noted Hoekstra.  “I am looking forward to working with staff, administrators and members of the community to build on what we have established in Wyoming as we continue to provide meaningful and memorable experiences for everyone in the organization. I appreciate the Board of Education’s confidence in me and for Dr. Reeder’s strong leadership which has resulted in many accomplishments and a solid foundation to position the district for future success,” Hoekstra said.


Mr. Hoekstra, a lifelong west Michigan resident, and his wife, Johanna, have three (3) children.
