Wilmington City Schools Board of Education



 Bill Liermann (President) has served on the Wilmington Board of Education for 12 years and recently announced that he will not be seeking reelection.  Liermann’s goal in serving on the board of education was to help make Wilmington City Schools the best school system possible by providing quality leadership and staffing throughout the district and by spending responsibly. Looking back over the last 11 years, Liermann believes the board has made significant improvements in the district’s facilities and has strived to spend monies in a conservative yet prudent manner.  The district has modernized its bus fleet and initiated cost-saving programs in its HVAC systems.  Liermann defines his proudest moments as when the district attained its Excellent rating, as determined by the state report card and the pleasure he experiences on graduation day as he watches the faces of graduates as they receive their diplomas and the moments they share with their parents, grandparents, and fellow classmates.  He and his wife Deanna, a 1979 graduate of Wilmington High School, are the proud parents of two sons—Steve who graduated from Wilmington High School in 2000, and now lives in Arizona, and Scott, who graduated in 2013 and now attends Capital University.
