At the October 2012 Board of Directors’ meeting, APEI welcomed a new member to its board of directors. Jenny Martens, Director of Budget and Finance at the Lower Yukon School District, was elected to fill vacant seat with a term expiring in October 2013. Jenny brings extensive school district experience to the APEI Board of Directors. She spent 11 years as the business manager for the Petersburg City School District and 2 years as the business manager for the Nome Public School District prior to moving to Mountain Village to work with the Lower Yukon School District. In addition to work experience in public education, Jenny has spent 5 years serving on the Board of Directors for the Alaska Association of School Business Officials and currently serves as board president. APEI is glad to add Jenny’s expertise to its Board of Directors. At the October Board of Directors’ meeting, Elizabeth Masoni (City of Unalaska), Karen Goodwin (Northwest Arctic Borough School District), and Bob Herron (At-large), were re-elected to 3 year terms.
