Dr. Jeff Miller, Lee’s Summit R-7 School District associate superintendent of human resources, announced his retirement from the school district, effective June 30, 2018. His request for retirement was approved at the Oct. 19 Board of Education meeting.
“My heart and soul have been and will continue to be with the Lee’s Summit schools and Lee’s Summit community,” Dr. Miller said.
A Lee’s Summit R-7 employee since 2000, Dr. Miller was initially hired as principal of Pleasant Lea Middle School. He was named director of student services in 2004 and moved to his current role in the Human Resources Department in 2011. He has been an educator for 28 years.
“Dr. Miller is a key leader in our school district,” said Dr. Dennis L. Carpenter, superintendent. “He brings invaluable historical perspective and leadership acumen to the Superintendent’s Leadership Team. I look forward to continuing to work closely with him over the next several months to ensure a smooth transition in our Human Resources Department. It is great to see someone so deserving reach the point of retirement.”
