Daphne Moehring is a dedicated and experienced advocate for our schools. Daphne, currently in her 4th year on the Gahanna Jefferson School Board, serves as Vice President. In addition, she chairs the Finance Committee for the district which provides robust financial oversight and allows for public interaction during its meetings. Daphne approaches her school board position with the same passion she does her professional and volunteer work: with commitment to preparation, reading continuing education on topics critical for the district, and attending every meeting.
In the Gahanna-Jefferson community, Daphne serves as the district representative on the City of Gahanna Parks & Recreation Board as well as the Gahanna-Jefferson Education Foundation. She regularly attends Gahanna City Council meetings to stay apprised of developments that may affect the school district. Prior to joining the BOE, she served seven terms as PTO President between two schools and as a committee chair on the GLHS PTO. Daphne is a five year member of the Gahanna-Jefferson Education Foundation’s Grants Committee, three years of which she spent as the Volunteer Chair for the Gala Committee. Daphne also volunteers with her church, Peace Lutheran of Gahanna, and for Gahanna Residents in Need.
Outside of the education world, Daphne is involved with Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and the Gahanna Kiwanis. She is currently the Secretary of the Whetstone Chapter of DAR. Gahanna Kiwanis is an organization that she is excited to be affiliated with as the mission of Kiwanis, an international organization, is to improve the world by making lasting differences in the lives of children. Daphne has a strong sense of family history and is the historian/genealogist for her mother’s maternal family. She has published the family history of both sides of her mother’s lineage.
For Daphne, raised in the small, southern Ohio town of Jackson, education was the family focus. After she graduated from Capital University, she married Boyd Moehring, a 1980 Gahanna graduate. They chose to raise their two daughters, Hallie and Mallory, in Gahanna. Both daughters graduated from Gahanna-Lincoln High School and recognize the quality education they received at GLHS as they pursue college degrees.
