One New MRH Board Member, One Returning Member Sworn In
Nikylan Knapper took the oath of office to the Maplewood Richmond Heights School Board at a special session Tuesday night. She was elected to the board on April 2nd for a term lasting three years. Knapper assumes the directorship previously held by Nelson Mitten, who is retiring from the board after a 21-year run.
Knapper is a resident of Maplewood with her husband Sam, MRH first-grader Teddy, and twin 2 year olds Lyndon and Grant. She has served as a Cub Scout leader, an MRH PTO ECC Co-Chair, and a Youth Soccer Coach for MRH Youth Sports.
Knapper is a Federal Administrative Judge for the U.S. Department of Agriculture and previously was an attorney for the Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and an Assistant Public Defender in Nashville, TN.
MRH district voters re-elected Brandi Herndon-Miller to her first full three-year term. She was selected in 2017 to fill the unexpired term of a former board member who stepped down.
Also at the board session, members voted to restore officers to their respective positions: Katie Kaufmann remains president, Francis Chmelir vice president, Wes Robb treasurer, and Maria Langston secretary. Ralph Posley, as well as Knapper and Brandi-Herndon, hold director titles.
