Kristin Reingruber

Kristin Reingruber, one of three candidates elected to the Brookfield-LaGrange Park District 95 Board of Education in April, took her place at the board table after reading her oath of office at the beginning of the May 11 school board meeting.

The other four people elected last month, Katie Mulcrone, Elizabeth Loerop, Meaghan McAteer and Jackie Jordan, were incumbents. 

Mulcrone was elected to her second full term on the school board after first winning election in 2019. This is Loerop’s first full four-year term on the District 95 school board, having been appointed in August 2021 to replace Kyle Wood, who resigned after moving out of the district.

Both McAteer and Jordan, who were also elected in 2019 to four-year terms, chose this year to run for a pair of two-year terms that were up for election. 

The first is to finish out the remaining two years on Wood’s unexpired term. The other two-year term finishes out the unexpired term of Melissa Biskupic, who was appointed to the board in June 2021 after just two candidates ran for three open school board seats that spring. Biskupic declined to run to retain that seat for two more years.

Following Reingruber’s swearing in, school board members voted to re-elect Mulcrone as school board president, Jordan as board vice president and McAteer as board secretary.
