PASCO, WA -- Educational Service District 123 in Pasco is pleased to welcome their newest board member, Ms. Kara Kaelber. During a special open public session on August 24, the ESD 123 board of directors interviewed Ms. Kaelber for the open Director District No. 2 position, which has been vacant since April.

ESD 123 provides services and support to 23 school districts in seven counties across Southeastern Washington. The Director District No. 2 position oversees the districts of College Place, Dixie, Waitsburg, Prescott, and Star, along with portions of Walla Walla, North Franklin, and Pasco School Districts. As a certified teacher and administrator, Ms. Kaelber comes to the ESD with a wealth of experience and passion for education.

"I believe in service before self and that the ESD 123 board position is a great opportunity for me to give back to the larger education community that I know and understand well," states Kaelber.

Ms. Kaelber currently serves as the Education Director at the Franklin Conservation District where she coordinates three environmental education programs across Washington State. Prior to her work with the Conservation District, Ms. Kaelber has served as an adjunct professor, a middle school reading and language arts teacher, and in various roles on community education committees and programs.

ESD 123 Superintendent, Mr. Darcy Weisner, is grateful that Ms. Kaelber will be joining the ESD team.

"Ms. Kaelber is an outstanding addition to both our board of directors and our entire ESD team," states Superintendent Weisner. "She brings a great deal of knowledge and background experience, and her passion for impacting education is evident. We're excited to bring her on board."

During the ESD 123 regular board meeting on September 28, Ms. Kaelber will be officially sworn into her position as a member of the board of directors. For more information, contact Molly Curtiss, Communication & Graphics Coordinator, at 509.544.5787 or
