Dr. Robert M. Hollister

Superintendent of Schools, ELANCO School District

Dr. Hollister is the Superintendent of Schools for the Eastern Lancaster County School District. Born in Lancaster County, he “returned home” in 2005 to serve as Assistant Superintendent and three years later was appointed Superintendent. Prior teaching and administrative experiences occurred in Berks, Bucks, and Montgomery counties in Pennsylvania. Serving recently as the President of the Pennsylvania Council for International Education and currently a member of the Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators Board of Governors, Dr. Hollister understands the urgency for students to be “global-ready” and has that as a core principle when shaping policy and programs for students in the district. 


Dr. Hollister earned his master’s degree from Villanova University and his Doctorate in 2003 from Lehigh University. He is the proud husband to his wife Jennifer and father of their two daughters Carolyn and Beatrice.
