The Board of Education president for the Springfield City School District is leaving after a decade.

Board president Anita Miller-Biles is leaving her role after nearly 10 years of serving the district, according to a release from the school.

“Anita is one of the most dedicated leaders I’ve had the pleasure of working with,” Superintendent Bob Hill said. “It has been clear since the beginning of her tenure with the district that she is committed to providing quality education and experiences to our students and families. The Springfield City School District is a better place and community partner because of her leadership. She will leave big shoes to fill following her departure.”

Miller-Biles was given an award at her last school board meeting on Dec. 9 to commemorate her time on the board. Her name will also be placed on the first brick that will be used in an upcoming “buy-a-brick” athletic fundraising campaign.

Miller-Biles, who works as the Director of Health & Nutrition at the Miami Valley Child Development Center, Inc., started serving the Springfield school board in 2011.

“She has overseen countless changes in the district, as well as the transition to a new superintendent in 2015 – all while conducting herself with fairness and grace,” the release said.
