Byron loses third school board member
After four years on the Byron School Board, Sharon Kreitinger is stepping down.
She is the third Byron School Board member to leave her post in recent months. Emmy Harvey and Mike Denney both resigned and were replaced by newcomers in November after they were appointed during an October school board meeting.
Kreitinger notified the board and leadership teams last week, and will conclude her term of service on Feb. 7, 2022. Superintendent Mike Neubeck informed community leaders of the change by email on Nov. 29, saying “Sharon’s professional responsibilities are greatly increasing after the first of the year and she feels that it will be too difficult for her to put in the time and give the attention and support to the district that is needed from school board members.”
Neubeck went on to say he wants to thank Kreitinger for her years of service “and for her thoughtfulness and leadership to help make Byron Public Schools a great place for students, staff, and families. I wish her the best of luck with her endeavors.”
Kreitinger echoed Neubeck’s words, saying that being a productive member of the school board “requires due diligence, time and dedication. For me, it has been a privilege to have served the Byron Public Schools and community in this capacity since January 2017. With increased responsibility and work that often takes me out of the area, I am no longer able to give the attention and support that is needed to the district as a school board member.”
