Frank Appointed JPS Superintendent’s Secretary/District Clerk

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. –  Jamestown Public Schools recently welcomed Rhonda Frank to serve as the Superintendent’s Secretary and District Clerk to the Board of Education. Frank succeeds Jaunita Walter, who retired in August after seven years supporting the superintendent and board. 

“I am overjoyed to welcome Rhonda to this important position,” said Dr. Kevin Whitaker, JPS Superintendent. “She did an outstanding job during the interview process, and has been hitting the ground running.  Her experience and professionalism has helped her as she begins to get up to speed with the myriad challenges and tasks of this role. I am looking forward to a long partnership.”

Frank joins the district after spending 20 years as a Technical Assistant, Office Manager, and Secretary to the President at Summit Wealth Management in Jamestown. She also served in support roles to the Chief Administrative Officer of Jobs Chautauqua and Secretary to the CEO and President at the Florida Air Academy in Melbourne, Fla. 

“I'm looking forward to being a part of the most important aspect of our society, the education of our children,” said Frank. “It's extremely energizing to be working with such dedicated, high-caliber and highly qualified education professionals. I'm all in to give everything I've got to support Dr. Whitaker, the Superintendent's Office and the JPS Board of Education.”

A native of Sugar Grove, Pa., Frank has lived in Jamestown for 25 years. She has two children, Shine and Ash, who are both Jamestown High School graduates and have both gotten their undergraduate degrees at New York State universities.
