After twenty years as Founder and Executive Director of the KASD Education Foundation, Dr. Brenda Winkler has indicated her wish to mentor a new leader of the foundation’s Board of Directors. Dr. Winkler will remain a guiding force of the foundation as a member of the board while she mentors Executive Director-Elect, Mrs. Katherine Metrick.
Dr. Winkler recently shared, “I want to thank everyone who has supported the Foundation’s initiatives through the years when I served as Superintendent of Kutztown Area School District and then, as Executive Director of the Foundation. It is now time for me to turn over the role to our next Executive Director, Mrs. Kathy Metrick, also a retired KASD superintendent. I am thrilled that she agreed to assume this role since she too feels a special connection to our school district and to the Kutztown community.”
Mrs. Metrick commented, “I am excited about the Foundation’s future, and I look forward to working on its continuing journey.”
As the KASD Education Foundation conducts a yearlong 20th anniversary celebration of accomplishments through the end of 2021, we will also look back with deepest gratitude for Dr. Winkler’s inspiration and guidance during the past 20 years!
