Kyle Funk does not have children in the Goessel school district but that allows him to bring a unique perspective to his position as the newest member of the USD 411 board of education.
“I care about the future of our community,” Funk said. “I don’t have a biased opinion on where money should be spent and on what programs. I just bring to the board a perspective of someone who has lived and worked in the community my whole life and want to see our system succeed.”
Funk grew up in the Goessel community and graduated from Goessel High School in 2000. He started his own electrical business in 2002 and moved to a location on the east side of town in 2005.
“I think we need to be proactive in looking toward the future and the needs of our school and community,” he said. “If the school survives, the community thrives, and vice versa. We are all in this together.”
Funk is married and lives in the country northeast of Goessel. His business, Funk Electric, is located at 606 East Main Street. He fills the board seat recently vacated by Eric Schrag. The USD 411 Board of Education is now complete with seven members.
