Melissa Herrmann has been promoted to Kearney High School Assistant Principal.  She will be replacing Jeff Ganz who was recently hired as the principal at Sunrise Middle School.   Herrmann is completing her third year as Dean of Students.
“This promotion is a demonstration of Melissa’s strong leadership skills,” stated Kearney High School principal Jay Dostal.  “This is a natural progression in her administrative career.”
Jeff Ganz has been selected as the new principal for Sunrise Middle School.   Ganz has been the assistant principal at Kearney High School since 2012. 
Ganz will replace Lance Fuller who has been hired as the KPS Human Resources Director.
 “Ganz has proven himself as an effective administrator,” said Superintendent Brian Maher. “Sunrise students and staff will benefit from his leadership.”
 Lance Fuller, principal of Sunrise Middle School, will be leaving his position at the end of the school year to become the Human Resources Director for Kearney Public Schools. 
Fuller started his career in 1993 as a math teacher at Kearney High School. From 1995 to 2001 he served as assistant Principal at KHS.  Fuller became principal at Sunrise Middle School in the fall of 2001.
 
Norma Hledik, the current Human Resources Director, is retiring on July 31 after 25 years of service to the district.  Hledik began her career in 1989 as principal of Bryant Elementary where she served for 10 years.

EMERSON'S STECHER TO BECOME BRAINARD SUPERINTENDENT
Sam Stecher, Emerson Elementary principal, will resign his position this year to become the Superintendent at East Butler Schools in Brainard, Nebraska. Stecher has worked for Kearney Public Schools for the past 17 years.
“I have been a part of Kearney since 1997,” said Stecher. “This community has provided me with the opportunity to earn two degrees, work in three school buildings, and serve thousands of students.”
Stecher began his career at Horizon Middle School as a Social Studies teacher from 1997-2008. He then moved to Kearney High School from 2008-2011 to serve as Dean of Students. From 2011 to the present, Stecher has served as the principal for Emerson Elementary. “I have shared these experiences with educators of unparalleled quality,” Stecher said. “I wouldn't be half the educator I am, without what this community has given me.”
