Hamilton Southeastern Board of School Trustees President Julie Chambers announced Thursday evening her appointment of Andre Miksha to the Hamilton East Public Library (HEPL) Board of Trustees.
More than 50 applications from individuals residing within the HSE Schools’ boundaries expressed interest in filling the seat that was vacated by Brian Meyers.
Miksha will now serve the remainder of the current term which expires in August 2025. He joins six other HEPL Board of Trustees with the goal of making the library a better place for the community.
“In selecting the appointee, my main goal was to find someone that would support the mission of both Hamilton Southeastern Schools (HSE) and the Hamilton East Public Library. Andre Miksha’s dedication to public service, his experience within our school district and his commitment to ensuring that our public library system is supported, all contributed to his selection,” said Board President Julie Chambers.
Following a thorough review of all applications, Chambers was able to narrow it down to two finalists for additional evaluation. She says interviews were held with the finalists and she gathered feedback from community members prior to making her decision.
Miksha serves as the Chief Deputy Prosecuting Attorney in Hamilton County. After being admitted to the bar in 2003, he served four years on active duty in the U.S. Army JAG Corps. He then joined the Hamilton County Prosecuting Attorney's Office in Noblesville as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney in 2007 prior to being named to his current role in 2011.
Miksha is a proud father of two HSE students and his wife is an elementary teacher in the district.
As part of his appointment, Miksha will update the Board of School Trustees on the latest happenings at HEPL.
