New CFO/COO selected

April 12, 2024 – Jacob Myers, CPA, has been approved as the new chief financial officer and chief operating officer for the Webster Groves School District, effective July 1, 2024. 

Myers brings over a decade of extensive experience in governmental accounting and finance, making him an invaluable addition to the district's leadership team.

With a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting from Missouri State University and being a Certified Public Accountant since 2018, Myers has demonstrated proficiency in various financial management aspects crucial for overseeing the fiscal operations of the school district. His previous roles, including director of finance at Francis Howell School District and director of accounting and finance at Hazelwood School District, have equipped him with a deep understanding of school finance requirements, budgeting, payroll, and compliance with state and federal regulations.

During his tenure at Francis Howell School District, Myers successfully supervised all business office personnel and led major responsibilities in accounting, budgeting, finance, and auditing functions. His strategic thinking and solution-focused approach were instrumental in developing and presenting the district's annual budget, ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements, and overseeing long-term capital budget planning.

“Mr. Myers is a respected and trusted professional and person, and we can’t be more grateful that he has chosen to be a leader in the Webster Groves School District,” Superintendent Dr. John Simpson said.

"I am extremely excited to bring my experience and expertise to the Webster Groves School District,” Myers said. “The district has a strong reputation for having amazing staff, students, and community and I am ready to be a part of it!"

We look forward to Jacob Myers' contributions as the new CFO/COO and his ability to uphold the district's commitment to financial excellence. Myers replaces Pam Frazier, who is retiring at the conclusion of the school year.
