The Kyrene School District has appointed Amanda Nosbisch as the new prevention manager, after the recent departure of Amanda Hamm.

News of Nosbisch obtaining her new position came during Tuesday’s governing board meeting, where each board member voted to approve her appointment.

When news came that the district was looking to fill the prevention manager position, Nosbisch jumped at the chance to get the job.

Her enthusiasm comes from her deep passion of prevention and assisting families across the district.

“Being involved with the programs for so long I have seen what prevention can make on a student’s life, and what it can make in the classroom. I have a passion for it and have a deep desire to be involved with prevention, specifically in Kyrene forever if I can,” Nosbisch said.

Her new job will encompass all the prevention programs that occur around the district, which furthers the aid of Kyrene families in need, making sure those families needs are being meet through the Kyrene Family Resource Center and all annual initiatives.

“I’m very excited,” she said. “This is an awesome community that really gives whenever there is a need, so I’m excited to be a bigger part of that piece of helping the Kyrene kids.”

Nosbisch’s first item on her agenda is to continue gathering as much community involvement with receiving donations of food and hygiene products.

“Since we just finished Winter Wonderland and served close to 400 families… with all that happening in November and December, once January comes around we are super depleted. If the community were wondering how they can help next, I think it would be great to start thinking about food and hygiene,” Nosbisch said. “January, February and March are difficult months for all pantries all across the Valley because November and December are such high give months, but people are still in need and people are still hungry, so we keep working.”

Individuals interested in making any food, clothing or hygiene donations can drop off items at the Kyrene Family Resource Center, 1330 E. Dava Drive, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
