Karen is retired from the family business and holds a part-time job with the city. She is grateful for the chance to serve on the Board of Education for Center Line Public Schools and will continue to promote a positive vision for the district. Being a part of the Strategic Planning Team and the passing of the 2017 Bond have been some of the highlights of her tenure. However, she feels the most important highlights are those displayed by the students, teachers, and staff, who are the backbone of our district.
