We Welcome New Administrative Staff

Tom Birkenholz is the new Administrative Manager. He recently moved back to the Midwest after spending eight rewarding years on the East Coast; working in the Office of Development at Princeton University, the University of Connecticut Foundation, and the Windham Hospital Foundation in CT. Prior to his East Coast adventure, Tom worked for the Girl Scouts of Sycamore County in Lafayette, Indiana, for seven years following a 23 year career in the banking industry.

While at the Girl Scouts, Tom discovered the personal rewards of working in the nonprofit world, and he enjoys volunteering for local community organizations. His favorite volunteer activity is with community theaters. According to Tom, "I very much enjoy working with local non-profits that are making significant contributions to their communities. I also find it rewarding to work with the individuals who involve themselves with these organizations as staff or volunteers.”

He also enjoys the search for historical markers, distance cycling, woodworking and being a handyman around the house. Tom is looking forward to establishing deep roots in Iowa City with his husband, Dr. Barry Schreier, and is very excited and honored to be working for the Preucil School of Music.

Kalmia Strong is the new afternoon Administrative Assistant at Main Campus. Kalmia recently graduated with an MFA from the University of Iowa Center for the Book and has lived in Iowa City for five years. She is a book- and print-maker, artist, and community arts organizer who has been involved with many visual and performing arts endeavors. Kalmia is the resident bookbinder for the Paper Nest in downtown Iowa City and helps run local community art space Public Space One, when she is not cooking and gardening, teaching workshops, and now, working at Preucil School. She is excited to be joining the Preucil family!

In applying for the position, Kalmia wrote “I truly like working with people and pride myself on my ability to communicate effectively and respectfully in many different situations. Starting as a Suzuki violin student at age three had a large impact on the role of music in my life, I would love to have the opportunity to contribute to the Preucil School of Music.”

Several Students have been Honored in the Current Year!
