Newsweek names Hoover one of nation’s best high schools! When we have a headline like that and Mark and City Council have such great plans to revitalize our town, how can we miss? Great Job, everyone! We're a very proud city with a lot of history. Many intertwined families and friends and that is what binds us all together.
