The Stillwater Board of Education approved Rob Lamecker as the new Director of Facilities for Stillwater Public Schools at a December 14 meeting.
Lamecker started with Stillwater Public Schools in 2002 as a Part-Time Computer Specialist. He served the district as Assistant Director of Information Technology from 2006 until September of this year when he was appointed as Interim Director of Facilities.
“I’m grateful and honored to be given the opportunity to be the Director of Facilities for Stillwater Public Schools,” He said. “I’ll miss the team and department that Kevin Calvert, Director of IT, and I created over nearly two decades, but we’ll continue to closely work together to create modern solutions for both Facilities and IT.”
Lamecker hopes to implement a systems and growth-based approach to the SPS Facilities management process, seeking consistency with industry standards while maintaining excellence in service and focusing on the student learning experience and fiscal responsibility. Lamecker said he’s excited to be involved with the district’s planning for an upcoming bond issue in 2023, and has already been serving as a member of the district’s Long Range Facilities Planning Committees while in his capacity as Interim Director. In addition, Lamecker has already begun work to create a community of local facilities managers to encourage collaboration in Stillwater and the surrounding area.
Lamecker received an art degree from Oklahoma State University. He is married to Lori and the father of two, Ezra and Cora, who currently attend Westwood Elementary. In his spare time he likes to ride bicycles, hike, and maintain the local multi-use trails at Lake McMurtry.
“In his time as Interim Director, district administrators and I have been impressed by Mr. Lamecker’s approach to managing the Facilities team, expectations for excellence, and new approaches to existing challenges,” said Superintendent Marc Moore. “He has established strong working relationships across the district during his nineteen years with SPS, and I’m confident he will be a great addition as we work together to provide and maintain quality facilities for Stillwater’s children.”
