On Monday, April 19, 2021, the Romulus Community Schools Board of Education interviewed four candidates for the vacant position resulting from Edward Martell’s departure. We are pleased to announce the appointment of Mrs. Nichole German as the newest member of the RCS Family.

Mrs. German is no stranger to public education. She currently serves as the principal of Ann Visger Preparatory Academy for River Rouge Schools. Dr. Coleman, Superintendent of River Rouge, stated, “Nichole is a phenomenal and compassionate leader who will exhaust herself in advocating for a system that benefits children. She recognizes the contributions of the educational community in her various leadership roles.” RCS Board Member, Vice President, Judy Kennard stated, “We, the Board of Education, are very pleased to have selected Ms. German to serve as part of the board. We look forward to working with her and her valuable contributions.”

On Monday, April 26, 2021, the Romulus Community School Board formally accepted the resignation of Theresa Beard, who served nearly 12 years, faithfully. Mrs. Beard stated, “I did my job as a board member and made decisions to the best of my ability based on the information provided. I always tried to keep a student-first focus when possible...at this time, I can no longer serve and dedicate time to the position due to a variety of reasons.  I know that our district now has leadership in place and is moving in the right direction.” Dr. Benjamin P. Edmondson, RCS Superintendent, said that “Mrs. Beard was a consummate professional. She was a staunch advocate for financial stewardship; she was the keeper of district history; supportive of the new vision, and composed and passionate. Without a doubt, we will lose her tremendous wisdom and compassion.”

The RCS Board of Education will be posting a vacancy in the forthcoming days, which will include the particulars resulting from the vacancy and the necessary qualifications for prospective candidates.
