A Hollister School District Teacher will hold off retirement to become a member of the administration.

Mr. Brallier, who had announced his retirement from Hollister Middle School at the end of the 2021-2022 school year, is excited to announce his decision to forego retirement and remain a Hollister Tiger. “When I became aware that Hollister High School had an assistant principal opening, I immediately knew that this was an opportunity for me to give back to the district, staff, students, and community that I love,” Brallier explains. “The Hollister R-V School District is known for meeting the needs of students, staff, and our community.

His positive attitude and heart to serve help build community within a building and he is the perfect person to take on this role and be part of the HHS team.”
