Kenny Sernach was elected to serve on the Hamlet of Beavercreek Board of Directors as Director-at-Large in October 2017. He moved to Beavercreek in 2011 because he likes the rural setting: “I grew up in an area with a minimum lot size of five acres, and missed being outside the cities. This area was somewhere we could afford some land with a house we liked.” He has been working hard to maintain the property and reclaim some of it from overgrowth.
Kenny grew up outside of Corvallis, and attended both public and private schools. After graduating high school he attended Oregon State University where he earned a B.S. in Mathematics in 2008. He worked as a manufacturing technician and then engineering technician at Intel from January 2009 to June 2015 when he left to go back to school. That led to him graduating from Portland State University with a post-baccalaureate certificate in accounting. He is currently working as an accountant and expects to become a licensed CPA this year.
Before running for the Hamlet Board of Directors, he attended community meetings for several months. “I like the opportunity to plan events to try and bring the community together,” Kenny said. “I also feel it’s important to have an organization that can help more rural citizens to bring their concerns to government entities, especially when so close to cities and the metro area.”
He is currently spending time learning about the role of a Hamlet board member and getting to know the community and its issues. In his downtime, he enjoys spending time with family and friends.
We welcome Kenny to the board and invite residents to meet him at a monthly Hamlet meeting at the Grange!
