Principal Hanser was awarded the ‘Award of Excellence’ from MSU-Billings, and was also honored as one of the Billings Gazette’s ‘Forty Under 40’ recipients. In 2011 he was awarded the Educational Leadership Excellence Award from the University of Montana. In the fall of 2013, Principal Hanser was selected to represent the Diocese of Great Falls-Billings and the Diocese of Helena as the Secondary Education Commissioner for the Western Catholic Education Association. In 2015, he was awarded the Catholic School Leadership (CSL) Graduate Certificate from Creighton University. Principal Hanser was born and raised in Billings and graduated from Billing Central in 1989. He attended college and lived in Missoula for 12 years before moving back to Billings. Principal Hanser is married and has three children, all who attend Billings Catholic Schools, and he enjoys camping with his family and playing golf. His personal goal is to ‘pay it forward’.
