KPS Board member Tim Higgins resigns early

KEARNEY, Neb. (KGFW) – Come January, the six member Kearney Public Schools Board of Education could have four new members after one long-time member was elected to another position and two others decided not to seek reelection.

Board member Tim Higgins was elected to the Buffalo County Board of Commissioners in May. Higgins will assume his county seat in January.

The KPS Board accepted Higgins’ resignation at last night’s regular meeting. The early departure allows the current Board to select Higgins’ replacement before the Board’s make up changes.

Three KPS Board seats will be decided in November’s General Election. Two other long-time board members, Julie Agard and Dave Glover, decided not to seek reelection. Only current KPS Board President Alex Straatmann is seeking another term.
