McPherson USD 418 Board of Education members last night welcomed Kirby Fadenrecht, who took on the new position as Director of Finance and Human Resources for the McPherson school district effective July 1.
The Director of Finance and Human Resources is a new district position created last March to address the need for a chief financial officer to run oversight on everyday operations within the district.
Fadenrecht worked for 35 years at Tabor College in Hillsboro where he served as Senior Vice President for Business and Finance. As Director of Finance and Human Resources, he will be serving under the McPherson school district’s Director of Operations Gordon Mohn, who will now focus on longer-term financial goals for the school district.
Mohn and the new Director of the McPherson County Special Education Cooperative Melissa Strathman will partner in the supervision of the district’s new Director of Finance and Human Resources. Both Mohn and Strathman report directly to USD 418 Superintendent Mark Crawford.
