Join us in welcoming Wendy Planicka as the new Communications Coordinator for Lebanon Schools! 

Planicka comes to Lebanon from Milford Exempted Village School District, where she served as Director of Communications for two years. Previous to that she held communications roles for Xenia Community Schools, for the Butler County Board of Developmental Disabilities, and for West Clermont Local School District. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from Bowling Green State University and began her professional career as a journalist before moving into the field of public relations. Her family, including her husband Mike and their three daughters - twins Arlene and Lydia, and Evelyn - reside in Lebanon. Arlene and Lydia are juniors at Lebanon High School and Evelyn is in preschool. 

Lebanon City Schools created this Communications Coordinator position to facilitate a thorough review of the district’s current communications and to develop and implement a strategic communications plan. The goal of this communications plan is to effectively communicate with all stakeholders, through multiple channels, to share the good news of what is happening in the district. 

“I am excited to have someone with Wendy’s experience and expertise leading our communication efforts. Her experience creating communications programming at Xenia and Milford were experiences we were drawn to as we created this new department. I have consistently heard from our community that effective and consistent communication is a need in our district,” said Isaac Seevers, Superintendent. “I believe Wendy’s connection to the community and school district, along with her experience as a journalist and school communications professional, will be a tremendous asset.  I look forward to seeing how Wendy will tell the story of the amazing things happening at Lebanon City Schools.”
