Kevin Cole

Region 3 Vice-President

Kevin Cole was elected to the Region 3 Vice President's position at the December 2 Region 3 Regional Meeting.

Cole has been a member of the Labette County USD 506 school board for three years. He has served as vice president for two years. He is also a three-year board member of the SEK Interlocal, serving as vice president.

Cole decided to become a board member as he comes from a family of educators. My wife, her mother and father are lifelong educators. I appreciated their commitment to impacting lives positively in their daily interactions. All educators change and mold the lives of the students they teach. Educators need advocates for the work they perform and I wanted to be a leader to bring value to their careers.

Kevin is  a Regional Sales Manager for Ozarks Coca-Cola Company, 23 years in management and operations. He is married with two children. Cole enjoys spending time with family, working cattle, landscaping, attending sports events. He also enjoys participating in, leading policy and committee processes.

Twenty-three years in a management role has allowed me to grow professionally. I have years of management, organization, fiscal management, conflict resolution training that I have been able to use to support administration. These skills have helped the board and administration impact the district positively.
