School Board President

dmarlerMy name is Dennis Marler. I am a proud 1977 graduate of Taylor High School. Following graduation, I spent two years on a church mission in Japan and then went on to obtain my Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from General Motors Institute (now Kettering University). I worked full-time for GM for two years before taking an educational leave to attend the MIT Sloan School of Business where I obtained a Master’s of Science in Management in 1989. We then took a job with IBM in Lexington, KY for one and a half years before returning to Kokomo in 1990.

My wife Marcia, Taylor High School Registrar, and I have spent the last 20 years raising our family in the Taylor School system. We have three children, all of which have spent their entire secondary education years at Taylor: Tyler, class of 2004; Tara, a 2007 graduate; and Trevor, class of 2013. I am currently employed by Delphi as a Platform & Commercial Manager responsible for the Powertrain Diesel engine control business.

In my free time, I enjoy coaching baseball in the youth leagues at Taylor (18 years as a coach and board member), Taylor 7th grade basketball, and soccer. I also enjoy woodworking when I have the time.

I ran for the school board in an effort to continue improving our school system and to help make it a place of pride for all those involved – our students, teachers, staff, administrators, and constituents. I firmly believe that Taylor is well on our way to becoming a leader in how our students are educated and in preparing them for the next phase in their lives. We have excellent teachers, administrators and staff and I am excited about the future of our schools.
