WASHOUGAL — Washougal school board President Angela Hancock will step down from the board later this month for personal reasons.

Hancock announced her resignation, effective June 12, during a board meeting in late May.

“This decision did not come lightly,” said Hancock, a mother of two who works as a records clerk for the Camas Police Department. “I have some changing personal priorities that require more of my attention that I can’t provide while I’m serving on the school board. I know stepping down is something that I personally must do for myself.”

Hancock has been a member of the board since 2018, when she succeeded Elaine Pfeifer in position No. 2. She assumed the vice president’s role in 2020 and president’s position in 2023 after the resignation of Cory Chase.

“It’s been rewarding to serve, but (we’ve) had some very challenging, challenging times, and it’s been a challenging experience,” she said. “I’ve poured my time and my energy into this elected volunteer position for almost six years now, and I’m proud of the progress that we’ve made together as a board, especially through the challenging times, because what we’ve faced is unlike any (challenge that) directors before us (faced), I believe.”

The school board will share details about the process of filling Hancock’s position “once they are ready,” according to a statement.
