Theology teacher Paul Kramschuster won a seat on the Center School District School Board April 3. Kramschuster took second after Rebecca Lahann, earning him the second and final position on the board. Kramschuster decided to run for the open seat to bring a teacher voice to the board. This is his way of giving back to the community that some of his children attended, according to Kramschuster. 

“It’s one way to give back to the center community,” Kramschuster said. “It is such a welcoming and diverse school [for us].”

I think he felt confident that the public was ready to give him this opportunity.”

His run for a position on the school board started during the beginning of March when Kramschuster was the first one to file his campaign, meaning his name was at the top of the ballot. This, among other strategies, was a way for Kramschuster to maximize his chance of winning. Continuing with his campaign, Kramschuster was endorsed by the Teacher’s Education Association, where he received a stipend to buy materials including signs and leaflets. Seniors Chigozie Okuagu, Jiho Lee and Lucy Steyer participated in Kramschuster’s campaign by hanging leaflets in neighborhoods located in the Center School District.

“My favorite part was contributing to one of my favorite teacher’s campaigns,” Okuagu said.

When he starts his position, Kramschuster hopes to first listen and learn from the other members. He also hopes to keep the meetings transparent to the public.

“There’s a danger of coming in and thinking your going to change everything,” Kramschuster said.

Kramschuster’s wife, Julie, is a math and science teacher at Center High School, where their daughter, Jillian Kramschuster, is currently a junior. Julie believes that Kramschuster’s ability to listen to all voices will be valuable on the board. She credits their marriage for her ability to trust in his judgement when running.

“He talked to so many people, which was an amazing experience for him, and I think he felt confident that the public was ready to give him this opportunity,” Julie said.

Kramschuster began his role at a school board meeting Monday April 9, where he was introduced. He was formally sworn in, while the two members leaving were honored. He looks forward to attending future trainings within his role that will better prepare him for future school board endeavors.

“This is an honor and there’s a responsibility of serving the school district and the people,” Kramschuster said.
