Longtime Concord School Board member Randy Myers credits his educational philosophy as the motivation for his many years of service on the board.
“Every child should be given opportunities to expand their interests and skills,” Myers stated, adding that Concord Community Schools does a supreme job of creating a family atmosphere where students are supported and cared for.
Myers, who was first elected to the board in May 2002, is a 1971 graduate of Concord High School. After high school, he studied mechanical engineering at Tri-State College for two years before transferring to Ball State University to study architecture. He obtained a bachelor of science degree in environmental design in 1978 and a bachelor’s degree in architecture with a minor in math in 1981.
He is the president and owner of Interface Architecture & Design, located in the Crossroads Professional Park at C.R.s 17 and 18 in Elkhart. He was previously a partner at Peer-Myers Architects. He is licensed to practice architecture in 13 states.
Myers has lived in the Concord Community Schools district for all of his life. He and his wife, Diana, a retired second-grade teacher, raised their two daughters — Kelli and Kristel — in Concord schools. Today, their oldest of three grandchildren is a first-grader at Concord East Side Elementary.
Myers served as a “band dad” for eight years, coached Concord Little League for 11 years, and, along with his family, hosted foreign exchange students from Denmark, Germany, and France. He is also the junior high and high school teacher at Bethel Missionary Church.
In addition to the school board, Myers serves as vice chairman of Hubbard Hills Estates, senior life director of the Indiana Builders Association, is a past president of the Builder’s Association of Elkhart County, board treasurer of the Missionary Church/North Central District Governance Board, treasurer of Concord Rotary Club, and treasurer of Bethel Missionary Church.
His hobbies include athletics, cars, and remodeling.
