New director chosen to head Pasco's employee relations office
Tampa labor lawyer Betsy Kuhn is headed back to the Pasco County school district to oversee contract negotiations, employee investigations and contract implementation.
Superintendent Kurt Browning has nominated Kuhn to become employee relations director, taking the place of Kevin Shibley, who has been promoted to executive director of administration. Shibley replaces Renalia DuBose, who retires this month to teach law school.
Kuhn worked as a supervisor in the department for nearly two years before resigning to go into private practice. She was the district's co-supervisor of the year in 2011.
"I miss public service. I miss being in education," Kuhn told the Gradebook. "I'm looking forward to it."
She begins on May 6 if the School Board approves the nomination.
