Staff report
Kerri D. Schelling, KSBA’s board team development director since 2006, has been promoted to associate executive director.

Schelling has been overseeing the association’s professional development for local school board members, and established the Academy of Studies in its current form. She also manages KSBA’s training conferences and is a frequent presenter on education leadership at events across the country, in addition to being a training and facilitation consultant for more than a decade.
Schelling said she is honored and looking forward to the new role within KSBA.

“I absolutely love working with school boards so the opportunity to serve our members in this new way is very exciting,” she said. “Over my career at KSBA I’ve had the opportunity to interact with and get to know our members in ways that give me unique insights into what they need and want. One of my primary goals as associate executive director is to use this relationship with our members to help KSBA sharpen our focus.”

Schelling, who holds a master’s degree in industrial/organizational psychology from Radford University in Virginia and a bachelor’s degree from Pittsburg State University in Kansas, began her career at KSBA in 2004 as director of school safety and student support services. Prior to that, she worked as a training coordinator for the Kentucky Center for School Safety and project manager for Eastern Kentucky University’s Training Resource Center.

“Kerri brings such a wealth of experience to her new job, but especially her background in direct services to our members,” said KSBA Executive Director Mike Armstrong. “She is very well-known among school board members, superintendents, staff at the Kentucky Department of Education and the National School Boards Association. Perhaps most significantly, she has a track record of innovation for the services under her oversight. As associate executive director, I’m confident she will continue helping move all of our services to the state’s 173 public school systems in new and exciting ways.”

Schelling is a certified association executive through the American Society of Association Executives and currently serves as president of the Kentucky Society of Association Executives. She also is a member of the National School Boards Association Federation of Trainers.
