Wilmington City Schools and the Wilmington community suffered a major loss on August 14, 2020 when Steve Murphy passed away. We were fortunate to have Steve serve Wilmington City Schools as a Board Member for over 18 years.
On September 9, 2020 the Board appointed Carrie Zeigler as their newest Board Member to fill Steve’s unexpired term which ends December 31, 2021.
Carrie is a lifelong resident of Wilmington, an WHS alumna, and the parent of a WCS student. She earned her Masters in Education in Educational Administration from Kent State University and served in the Wilmington City School District for 18 years from 1999 to 2017. In recent years she and her husband spearheaded the start of the Clinton County Chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace, a nonprofit organization that builds beds for children who have none.
Carrie’s commitment to her community, her knowledge and experience as an educator and business owner, and her dedication to improving our schools and the lives of the children in our community will be tremendous assets to the WCS Board of Education.
"I am very excited and looking forward to working with Ms. Zeigler. Her years of service in the education field will definitely be a plus for the board and our district". - Marty Beaugard, WCS BOE President.
Carrie will officially take the oath of office at the September 28, 2020 Board Meeting.
