Sam Stecher, Emerson Elementary principal, will resign his position this year to become the Superintendent at East Butler Schools in Brainard, Nebraska. Stecher has worked for Kearney Public Schools for the past 17 years.
“I have been a part of Kearney since 1997,” said Stecher. “This community has provided me with the opportunity to earn two degrees, work in three school buildings, and serve thousands of students.”
Stecher began his career at Horizon Middle School as a Social Studies teacher from 1997-2008. He then moved to Kearney High School from 2008-2011 to serve as Dean of Students. From 2011 to the present, Stecher has served as the principal for Emerson Elementary. “I have shared these experiences with educators of unparalleled quality,” Stecher said. “I wouldn't be half the educator I am, without what this community has given me.”
