Plymouth-Canton School Board Appoints Kim Crouch as Trustee
Crouch will fill vacancy left by former board member Barry Simescu.
The Plymouth-Canton Board of Education on Tuesday appointed Kim Crouch as trustee.
Crouch will fill the vacancy left by former board member Barry Simesecu, who resigned in January, citing increased responsibilities at work.
Crouch, a General Motors attorney and mother in the district, was one of four finalists who interviewed Tuesday with board members. The other finalists included Julie Rowe, Jeff Ames and Brian Jansen.
"I'm excited to be on the board," Crouch said. "It's a good opportunity to have more parental input on the board."
Crouch praised the other candidates seeking the seat.
"I thought that they had really good candidates," she said. "It was just kind of a matter of what they were looking for and who they thought would fit, and I thought I had things to offer from having three kids in the district to being an attorney to having been really involved in the community."
Crouch said she brings a collaborative work style to the board.
"If I have to disagree, I do it without being disagreeable," she said.
