The Miamisburg City School District is excited to announce the hiring of new school district Treasurer Justin Blevins. The Board of Education will appoint Blevins at the Thursday, Jan. 19, board meeting after accepting the resignation of outgoing Treasurer John Espy.

“Justin brings a wide range of experience to our team at MCS,” said Board of Education President Dale Toadvine. “With his prior experience as an educator and treasury department employee at Mason City School District, Justin’s analytical mindset and experience paired with his desire to learn and expand his skill set make him the perfect candidate for the job.”

Blevins received a master’s degree in Economics from Wright State University in 2019 and studied education at Miami University, where he received his bachelor’s degree in education in 2014. He spent seven years in the classroom at Mason City Schools teaching science before moving on to the benefits coordinator position within the treasury department. In pursuit of his treasurer's license, Blevins completed his internship under the Mason City School District Treasurer. 

“I am excited to take on this new role with Miamisburg City Schools,” said incoming Treasurer Justin Blevins. “Maintaining the district’s reputation for fiscal responsibility while providing an exceptional education to our students is and will continue to be my priority in this position.”

John Espy, the outgoing Treasurer of the Miamisburg City School District, was appointed to the position of treasurer in September 2021 and has worked tirelessly since then on a number of initiatives to improve the financial health of the district.

Espy’s efforts have been widely praised, and he leaves behind a legacy of fiscal responsibility and innovative solutions for improving fiscal efficiency within the district. “We’d like to thank Mr. Espy for his service and dedication to the Miamisburg City School District,” said Toadvine. 

“As we look forward to the future, I am confident that our progress in achieving our strategic goals will continue under Blevins' financial leadership,” remarked Superintendent Laura Blessing. “Mr. Espy has set a precedent of attention to detail and determination that I am confident will be matched by Blevins.”
