Hillsboro School District Staff Throw out First Pitch at Hillsboro Hops Game

August 28, 2019 - The Hillsboro Hops baseball game on Monday, August 19, was Educator Appreciation Night and HSD had a great showing with over 100 staff members and friends in attendance. Because HSD had more people there than any other school district, Superintendent Mike Scott and Jackson Elementary School principal Kasia Gutierrez and teacher Christa Pruss had the opportunity to throw out a ceremonial first pitch. Scott’s pitch was not captured on video, but Gutierrez’s and Pruss’ was and is shared here. Congratulations to the Hops – who that night were playing under their throwback name of the Mavericks - for beating the Tri-City Dust Devils 6-4, and many thanks for honoring our amazing educators!
