Graphic Treasurer Kimberly Hughes

As the Board of Education of Mt. Healthy City Schools began their search for a new treasurer, they knew they had big shoes to fill. Rebecca Brooks had been an integral part of the district for 35 years and had done a fantastic job of keeping the finances in order. However, they were confident that they would find someone who could continue the good work and take the district to new heights.

After several rounds of interviews, they found their candidate in Kimberly Hughes. Ms. Hughes had grown up in Mt. Healthy and had attended Rex Ralph Elementary, South Jr. High, and Mt. Healthy High School. She had spent the last 22 years of her career in public education, working her way up from a school secretary to the Assistant Treasurer at Central Office for Cincinnati Public Schools. Her varied professional experience had prepared her well for the role of Treasurer in Mt. Healthy City Schools.

Kimberly is thrilled to be coming back to her hometown and working for the district that had given her so much. She was enthusiastic about the opportunity to shape the lives of the current students for their success tomorrow. She knew that there were many challenges facing the district, including students with disabilities, economically disadvantaged students, and gifted students. However, she is committed to using tax dollars responsibly and allocating funds to student-driven initiatives and resources.

The Board of Education is equally excited to have Kimberly on board. Board Member Julie Turner was impressed with Kimberly's enthusiasm and experience with Cincinnati Public Schools. She was confident that Kimberly would continue the good work of Rebecca Brooks and bring some fresh ideas to the district. Board Member Kimberly Bouldin-Bryant was also excited to welcome Kimberly to the Mt. Healthy family and looked forward to working with her.

Rebecca Brooks is grateful for the opportunity to serve the district for so many years but is excited to retire and spend more time with her family. She is confident that Kimberly would do an excellent job of taking over as Treasurer.

Kimberly is committed to working with all stakeholders in the district and taking everyone’s perspective into consideration. She will continue to ensure that the district remains fiscally responsible with taxpayer dollars and allocate funds to the necessary academic resources. She is determined to make a difference in the lives of the students of Mt. Healthy City Schools, just like her favorite Mt. Healthy teacher, Ms. Teri Phillips, had made a difference in her life.

Kimberly's journey has come full circle, and she is ready to make an impact in the community. Her passion, enthusiasm, and experience would be invaluable as she takes on the role of Treasurer. The future of Mt. Healthy City Schools is in good hands.

Ms. Hughes will begin her role on April 10th, 2023.
