Kremer appointed to Yarnell Elementary School District Governing Board
Steven Kremer has been appointed to the Yarnell Elementary School District Governing Board. The appointment will be effective Jan. 10, 2019, and will expire on Dec. 31, 2020.
This seat was vacant due to the fact that no one filed for the vacancy during the 2018 election cycle.
The seat was previously held by Ben Palm.
“We greatly appreciate the service that Mr. Palm has provided to the school district and the community,” Yavapai County School Superintendent Tim Carter stated in a news release.
Kremer and his wife, Michelle, have owned property in the district since 2005 and have been residents of the district since 2015. The couple have two grown children.
According to the release, Kremer holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Education and a Master of Arts in College Student Personnel from Bowling Green State University. He also has earned 75 hours toward a doctorate in history from Ohio State University.
Kremer is retired. His career was primarily on major university campuses serving in an administrative role in the areas of student life, residential life, counseling and consultation, student wellness, and housing.
“Mr. Kremer understands the role of the Governing Board and will work to balance the needs of students, parents, staff, and the taxpayer,” Carter said. “He should relate well to all segments of the community and will work well with his fellow Board Members.”
Carter accepted letters of interest before conducting interviews of those who expressed an interest in the position. He then spoke individually with each of the elected members of the Governing Board, members of the school staff and administration, and communicated with several area residents prior to making the appointment.
A swearing-in ceremony is scheduled for 3 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 10, at the Yarnell School District Governing Board meeting.
