Jodi Hack Named Stayton's First Citizen

Excerpt from an article in the Statesman Journal, February 29, 2012.

Marylhurst business student Jodi Hack was recognized as Stayton's First Citizen at a community awards celebration on April 2.

Giving back has always been a big part of how Jodi Hack has lived her life.

She attended Chemeketa Community College, earning two associate's degrees in criminal justice and general education.

Hack took classes at Willamette University, but raising her kids was her priority and she did not finish.

Now, at age 42, she is going back to school, and will earn her bachelor's degree in business and accounting from Marylhurst University.

"It's important to me to show my kids that you finish what you started, and I always said I would finish college," Hack said.

Hack works as the communications coordinator for North Santiam School District.

Through Hack's work and volunteer service, she has written grants that have netted more than $1.5 million for the school district and various organizations.

She serves on the board of Friends of the Family, is president of Stayton High School Boosters Club, is on the board of the North Santiam Schools Foundation, on the board of the Chemeketa Community College Foundation, sits on the Oregon Community Foundation Leadership Council and numerous other committees.

"It's a great feeling to see what a community can accomplish when people come together," Hack said. "It's so important for our kids to see that."
