The Geary County Board of Education held their first meeting of 2020, on January 13th, and they welcomed two new members to the Board.
Kristy Haden and her husband moved to Junction City for his job in law enforcement. She has 2 children that attend school in the district. Her youngest attends the Early Childhood program, and her oldest is in 2nd grade. During the Day, Kristy is the Deputy Clerk for Wabaunsee County. She is also a certified EMT.
Kristy ran for the Board position because she wanted to be more involved in her children’s education. She brings a lot of energy to the Board and hopes to make a positive impact in her children’s educational experience. Her goals, as a member of the Board, are to create more consistency throughout USD 475, and to foster communications between the district and parents.
Ron Johnson grew up in Junction City and graduated from JCHS. He has 3 children attending school within the district. During the day, Ron can be found at the Jim Clark Auto Center, where he has been a sales consultant for several years.
Ron ran for the Board seat because he wants to be more involved in the education of his children. He believes that being involved in his children’s education will make more of a positive impact than complaining about things he doesn’t like. Ron wants to represent parents and taxpayers during his tenure and hopes to do what is best for our students and our community.
Please help us welcome them both to the Geary County USD 475 Board of Education.
