Mr. Wiltz has served on the school board for 44 years and has been the board president for the past 15 years. In addition to his service to the district, Mr. Wiltz remains active in the community.

He leads mainly by example, always doing his best and encouraging others to do the same. While easy-going by nature, no one doubts his authority– he is direct and decisive when he needs to be.

Mr. Wiltz is a man of integrity and able to make the tough calls when necessary.
