Mr. Austin Hofer is one of the Sycamore Community School District Board of Education’s newest members.  Hofer graduated from Sycamore High School in 2006, and from there went on to receive his Bachelor’s degree from Valparaiso University in Business Management.

Prior to his current position at AGCO in Batavia as a Human Resources Generalist, Hofer worked at The National Bank & Trust Co. (NB&T) in Sycamore for 5 years as both a Bank Teller and Human Resources Generalist.  In June 2017, Hofer will start his new position at Sauber Manufacturing Company in Virgil as a Human Resources Business Partner.

Hofer decided to run for a position on the Board because this community gave him an amazing and nurturing education that has led to an enriching career.  He wants to ensure that the same education he received continues for all kids in Sycamore.  A quality education opens doors of opportunity that transcend socioeconomic situations.  In addition, he cares for the future education of his daughter, his nieces, and all of their friends who will attend our schools.  Hofer comes from a family full of teachers, so he also wants to ensure the teachers, administrators, and support staff of Sycamore have an enriching experience while serving the district.

Hofer met his wife, Allison, here in Sycamore.  In their free time, they love to spend time with their two-year-old daughter, Katharine.
