The Auburn School District Board of Directors has appointed Laura Theimer as its newest director.

Theimer replaces Anne Baunach, who resigned from her district No. 4 position in July. She will serve the remainder of Baunach’s term through 2019, when she is eligible to run for the position.

She will be sworn in during the board meeting that begins at 7 p.m. Aug. 27 in the James P. Fugate Administration Building, 915 Fourth St. NE.

Theimer has served in a variety of volunteer roles throughout the community. She has been the president of the Auburn Public Schools Foundation and the Auburn Downtown Association. She also has been involved in PTA at the school and regional level, served on the Auburn Area Chamber of Commerce and on several ASD committees.

“With Laura’s vast experience and involvement in our schools and community, she will be able to hit the ground running, providing the leadership and assistance to Auburn School District students, staff and patrons,” said ASD Board President Ray Vefik.

Theimer has lived in Auburn for 15 years. Her two daughters – Auburn Riverside High School graduates – are in college.
