Welcome Marilyn Bohn, New ESU 10 Board Member  

October 14, 2016

I grew up with my parents and two brothers on the family farm in Buffalo County.

I  married the love of my life Lonnie Bohn. We both graduated from Ravenna Public Schools in the 70’s and moved to Lincoln for college and back to the family farm. 

After college I worked for Rockwell International in Kearney as a Purchasing Secretary before starting our family of five sons. 

Our oldest, Bryan is a band director for Oakland-Craig Public Schools in northeast Nebraska. His wife, Jenna, is employed with ESU 2 as an Early Intervention Specialist working with children ages birth to 3 years. Our son Brad is a family practice physician at the Kearney Clinic. His wife, Sarah is a speech pathologist and presently working as a part time preschool teacher. They have three daughters. Brandon is a manager/pharmacist of Carrs in Anchorage, Alaska. His wife, Danielle is an Interior Design specialist. Scott and Michael are currently working with us on the family farm.

I served on the bond committee for the elementary addition onto the current Ravenna High School and have served on the Ravenna School Board of Education for 18 years. In 2008 I was elected to Region 13 to the Nebraska Association of School Boards as a Board of Director. During that time I was elected vice-president, which is a 5 year officer rotation. This is my last year as Past President of NASB. During my time as an officer I was on two nominating committees for the National School Board Association, one to elect our Western Region Board of Directors and the other for the national Secretary-Treasurer.

My hobbies are sewing, gardening, walking, growing grapes, and embroidery. I enjoy spending time with our family and granddaughters.
