The Lakota Board of Education approved Adam Zink as the new treasurer for the 17,000 student school district at its June 20 meeting. Zink will begin his new position on Aug. 1, following the retirement of long-time Lakota Treasurer and Chief Financial Officer Jenni Logan.
Zink is not new to the district, having served as the assistant treasurer since 2016. “I have learned from the best, working with Jenni Logan, and look forward to this new opportunity in my career with Lakota,” said Zink.
“Adam has worked closely with Jenni Logan for several years and is deeply involved in all aspects of Lakota’s finances,” said Board President Lynda O’Connor. “The Board has the utmost confidence in Adam and his commitment to continue Lakota on a path of fiscal responsibility for our taxpayers.”
During Zink’s tenure at Lakota and working alongside Logan, the district has continued to receive the Auditor of State Award with Distinction for eight years and has achieved a balanced budget for 10 consecutive years. Additionally, strong decisions made by the district during the last several years have earned Lakota one of the highest possible bond ratings of Aa1 by Moody’s Investors Service and AA+ by Standard + Poor’s.
Prior to coming to Lakota, Zink worked as a project accountant with the Ohio Auditor of State and treasurer/CFO in other districts in southwest Ohio. In addition to holding his Ohio School Treasurer license, he is a professional member of the Government Finance Officers Association and the Ohio Association of School Business Officials, where he is a past president of the Ohio Valley chapter
Zink earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Cincinnati. He lives in Liberty Township with his wife and young son.
