A Springfield Business Journal #12People You Need to Know professional, and someone #KPMCPAs already knows quite well, is Nixa Public Schools’ Superintendent Dr. Stephen Kleinsmith. As he nears retirement after 18 years with the district, we were happy to take the opportunity and soak up a little more knowledge from the 2017 Missouri Association of School Administrators’ Superintendent of the Year at his #12People Q&A event.
Dr. K. is an accomplished, relatable leader with a great sense of humor and plenty of personality. He believes relationships matter and so does involvement in the community you serve. A few words of wisdom from his interview include, “Listen your way to a solution,” and “You can disagree, but don’t be disagreeable.” Good luck and very best wishes on your next chapter as the Director of School & Community Partnerships at Missouri State University, Dr. K! #KPMNews
