Reynoldsburg Schools hires treasurer
Reynoldsburg City Schools introduced their new treasurer, Tammira S. Miller, at a reception July 21.
Miller, a native of Zanesville, comes to Reynoldsburg after serving 17 years as treasurer of West Muskingum Local School District.
A 1987 graduate of Ohio University, Miller became a Certified Public Accountant in 1992, the same year she also earned her Treasurer License.
Prior to joining West Muskingum, Miller worked as a staff accountant for Price Waterhouse in Columbus and Norman, Jones, Enlow & Company in Zanesville.
Miller brings a mix of public and private sector experience to the job including a background of not just being a treasurer but also responsible for auditing school districts, Superintendent Stephen Dackin said.
Among her many accomplishments at West Muskingum, Miller developed "School Finance 101", a project that helped to educate staff as well as the community about school funding. She was also successful in building financial credibility for the district.
Miller sees getting into the five-year plan as her first priority and will also participate in development of the new Financial Accountability Committee even before her official start date.
"We're thrilled that we are able to bring Tammi to the district," Dackin said. "Not only is she qualified in all technical aspects of the job, but to a person, everyone we spoke with commented on her impeccable character, that she is a person beyond reproach."
Miller admits that it was a tough decision to leave West Muskingum, but she sees in Reynoldsburg a great district doing great things. She says although the district faces some challenges, she feels that she has much to offer and that her skills and experience will be able to serve the district well.
"It's a win win situation" Miller said.
School Board President Cheryl Max said Miller came to the face-to-face interview well versed in Reynoldsburg's financial situation.
"She had really done her homework," Max said. She had already grasped the intricacies of our five-year plan."
Miller is married and has two children ages 10 and 11. For now, the family will remain living on their farm in Muskingum County.
Miller will begin her tenure at Reynoldsburg Aug. 17, earning $97,500 a year.
