When Ron Koehler, APR, (center) retired (for the first time) from his duties at Kent ISD, he posed with MSPRA colleagues at his retirement reception.  All pictured above are either MSPRA Past Presidents, NSPRA Past Regional Vice Presidents or NSPRA Past President. 
In Ron's case--it's all three! 

After a brief time of retirement, Ron returned to become Kent ISD's Superintendent.  Congratulations, Ron!
