The Apalachicola Area Historical Society on Saturday afternoon chose a retired librarian and former history teacher as its president for the next two years.

By unanimous election, at a meeting held at the home of Bill and Lynn Spohrer, the society voted for Carrie Kienzle to succeed Tom Daly as president.

Also approved were another two-year term for vice president David Adlerstein; treasurer Fran Edwards and secretary Shirley Taylor. Selected to serve on the board of directors were Kathy Willis and Susan Buzzett Clementson.

“I really appreciate this honor,” Kienzle told the luncheon audience. “I’m very excited.”

Kienzle, who has resided with husband Charlie in the historic district for the past eight years, brings a robust record of civic involvements in Apalachicola, including actively working with Trinity Episcopal Church’s Tour of Homes and with the municipal library board, as well as a seat on the city’s board of adjustment.

Her career has been marked by a lifelong passion for history as well as an extensive know-how of the world of the modern library.

After earning a master’s degree in library and information science from the University of North Texas in 1990, Kienzle worked as a school librarian on the elementary, middle and high school levels before being named library director for the Irving, Texas Independent School District, which comprises about 34,000 students.
