Amanda Kayser

My name is Amanda Kayser.  I am a 2002 West Central graduate.  I graduated from Augustana with a degree in nursing.  I am currently a registered nurse in Sioux Falls.  After college, I lived in Sioux Falls for several years while starting my career.  When my husband, Shay, and I decided to start a family, we had a strong desire to move our children to a smaller community where they would strive academically and socially in a school district with a strong sense of community pride and support.  Before our oldest started school, we moved back to the West Central district to an acreage by Wall Lake.   We have three children (Adrienne, Madelyn, and Everett) currently in both the Hartford and Humboldt elementary schools who keep us busy with their numerous activities.

My children and our community are the two things that motivate me to run for this position.  Serving on the school board would allow me to lead by example in order to show our kids it takes parental involvement to develop a strong sense of community.  I have the ability to serve as an effective board member to provide adequate representation for all students in order to excel in academics, athletics, and fine arts to propel our community forward in a positive manner.​
