Tammira Miller, treasurer for Reynoldsburg City Schools submitted her letter of retirement during the April Regular Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, May 19, 2021. Miller, who has worked for the District for 12 years, will retire on December 31, 2021.
Miller is responsible for keeping track of revenue and spending, as well as advising the Board of Education about sound financial management and sustainability. Armed with this information, the Board decides how and how much to invest in Reynoldsburg City Schools each year. Together, the Board and Miller are entrusted to manage a $61 million General Fund budget, in addition to several other funds, with the goals of providing the best opportunity for student academic success and the highest return on investment for Reynoldsburg taxpayers.
“Though I may be retiring, my heart will remain in Reynoldsburg,” said Miller. “I want to thank the Board of Education, the RCS staff, students and families for making me a part of their family these past 12 years.”
"Tammy is the hidden gem of the Reynoldsburg City School District,” said RCS Board of Education President, Debbie Dunlap. “While she is not the type of person to seek attention or recognition, she is more than deserving of the accolades bestowed on her as she gets ready to retire and enjoy her family and other interests. She has given selflessly to the students, staff and members of the Reynoldsburg community for more than a decade, always willing to truly listen to anyone she welcomes into her office with her open-door policy. There is nothing more she enjoys than sharing the financials of the District!
“She has always been fiscally responsible, transparent, innovative and conscious of the responsibility of managing public monies that benefit our most precious commodity, children,” Dunlap continued. “Tammy will be sorely missed but I hope that she enjoys pursuing other interests and travel that she has not afforded herself as she led this district in both responsible and heartfelt decision making, even in the most difficult of times. I thank her for her time, talent, intuitive planning, and grace."
“It has been my pleasure to work with Mrs. Miller who has been a phenomenal colleague, has provided a wealth of knowledge and application, and has understood the connections between finances and student achievement,” said RCS Superintendent Dr. Melvin J. Brown. “She has done incredible work for this district over the course of many years and we will miss her greatly.”
The RCS Board of Education heard presentations from two vendors, the Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA) and K-12 Business Consulting, Inc., and will select a firm to vet and hire Reynoldsburg’s next Treasurer over the coming months.
