Hancock County JFS Director Retiring At End Of The Month

12/11/18 – 5:21 A.M.

The director of the Hancock County Department of Job and Family Services is winding down a 31-year career with the agency. Dianna Hoover will step down on December 31 when she retires. Hoover says the defeat of the JFS funding levy in the spring didn’t play a role in her decision.

Hoover says she plans to stay active in retirement. She says he plans to do more kayaking on the Blanchard River as well as more gardening and cooking.

The Hancock County commissioners have extended a job offer to Hoover’s possible replacement and are waiting on an answer.
