From Mr. Adams' announcement:

"Kira’s dedication to the New Church, New Church education, and the mission of the Girls School is remarkable. She also has an impressive resume of experience in the Girls School and wider community. These range from her superb teaching in the classroom to working with students in a variety of forums, to her leadership within the faculty to her many years of service with the Fire Company. Her love for the students is evident, as is her desire to support and lead the faculty. Kira is very energetic and organized. She has an amazing work ethic and a can-do attitude that is contagious. I believe that she will be a fine leader for the Girls School and look forward to working with her."

Mr. Adams thanked outgoing principal Sue Odhner for her years of dedication to the Girls School, acknowledging what she has contributed and anticipating her efforts to prepare Mrs. Schadegg to take the reins next year.
