Kari Kephart
Superintendent/Elementary Principal

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! This is my first year as part of the Quinter family. I am honored to serve as the QES Principal and USD 293 Superintendent.

Education: B.S. in Elementary Education, Mount St. Mary’s University; M.A. in Educational Leadership, Salisbury University; currently obtaining an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership, University of Maryland Eastern Shore

Experience: I have taught students in grades 1st through 4th and I have worked closely with preschool and kindergarten students. I have administrative experience as both an assistant principal and principal.

Hometown: My family is originally from Maryland. I was born and raised in Hagerstown, MD.

Family: My husband, Jason, and I have two wonderful daughters – Brooklyne and Madilyne. Our family moved from Maryland’s Eastern Shore to Atchison, Kansas in 2015. We relocated to Quinter in 2017.

We are looking forward to the opportunity to raise our daughters in a small-town, rural setting.

Hobbies: Spending quality time with my family in the great outdoors.

I look forward to an exciting 2017-2018 school year as we work together to serve our students in the Quinter Public Schools.
