Dr. Reed D. Hankinson, Chief Executive Officer at EduLink, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of educational software.
Drawing on more than two decades of expertise in the educational software industry, Dr. Hankinson is recognized for his inimitable work as the chief executive officer of EduLink, a company specializing in web-based software solutions for various schools in the state of Pennsylvania. Established in 1998, the company is particularly well known for its proprietary Pennsylvania Electronic Teacher Evaluation Portal (PA-ETEP), a tool that is leveraged by 115,000 teachers throughout the state. Well regarded in its field, EduLink was recently named among the 20 Most Promising Compliance Technology Solution Providers in 2019 and as one of the 10 Hottest K12 Solution Providers by Educational Technology Insights in 2020.
Dr. Hankinson first attended college on a basketball scholarship, during which time he cultivated a love for helping children. Resolving to pursue a career in education, he earned a Bachelor of Arts in the subject from the Pennsylvania State University. Continuing his academic efforts apace, Dr. Hankinson matriculated at Duquesne University, from which he received a Master of Science in education and psychology, as well as a Doctorate of Education in educational leadership. Following this accomplishment, he secured his first position in the field as an elementary school teacher at the Gateway School District in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, after which he co-founded EduLink alongside his colleague, Dr. David Myers.
Adjacent to their work in education, Dr. Hankinson and Dr. Myers have contributed prolifically to charitable efforts aimed toward supporting the underprivileged youth of countries like El Salvador and Uganda. In the former country, they fundraise for Mission to El Salvador, a nonprofit that strives to lift people out of poverty and drug addiction, while in the latter they are avid donors on behalf of the Malayaka House, an orphanage that shelters abused children. Furthermore, Dr. Hankinson and Dr. Myers volunteer their efforts to the Clear Thoughts Foundation, which researches treatments for people living with dementia.
Outside of his vocational efforts, Dr. Hankinson is married to his loving wife, Mandy. Together, they are the proud parents of three children; Ben, Carson, and Reagan. Looking toward the future, Dr. Hankinson anticipates the success of Comply, a software tool EduLink recently premiered that helps to track and manage all compliance-related tasks in a school district, which they hope to take to the national stage.
