Price, who was one of 13 candidates, was selected Thursday to serve the remainder of Kathy Kingston’s term through 2021. He retired after serving in the U.S. Air Force for 29 years and works as a program manager at the Air Force Research Laboratory. He also is a father of six, with one child still attending Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Schools.

“Kevin Price possesses the traits and business experience that will help us continue to be successful and can represent the perspective of military families in our district. He will be a great asset for us on the board,” board President David Carpenter stated in a release.
