Jamie Bolser announced as new Chief Human Resource Officer
Richmond Community Schools is pleased to announce that Jamie Bolser has been selected as the next Chief Human Resource Officer. Mrs. Bolser comes to RCS with over 20 years of diverse leadership experience. Mrs. Bolser was the Chief Financial Officer at Northwestern School Corporation for eight years while also serving as the president of the Howard County Council. While at Northwestern, Mrs. Bolser contributed to the success of the school corporation by balancing the budget and implementing a districtwide strategic plan that was student focused while partnering with various entities throughout the community. During her tenure as president of the County Council, Mrs. Bolser worked to improve community relationships, employee retention and recruitment, while working collectively with the various departments throughout Howard County. Under her leadership, Howard County was debt free, fiscally solvent, and created lasting partnerships with the City of Kokomo to aid in the recent $2.5 billion joint venture with Stellantis and Samsung SDI to locate the investment in Howard County. Mrs. Bolser also served two terms as the County Assessor. During her time as assessor, she was crucial in successfully negotiating a nationally recognized settlement with General Motors, Delphi and Chrysler during bankruptcy proceedings, recovering 100 percent of all taxes collected by the auto companies during a time when other states were settling for 10%.
Mrs. Bolser holds a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from Indiana University Kokomo. After being a lifelong resident of Howard County, Mrs. Bolser along with her husband Clay Bolser, a 1994 Richmond graduate, have relocated to Richmond. "I am looking forward to joining the RCS team and the opportunity to be a part of the Richmond community. I was a lifelong resident of Howard County so the decision did not come easy. With that said, I am excited to build new relationships and my home in Richmond," Mrs. Bolser said. Clay and Jamie Bolser together have six children.
