Have you ever noticed that the majority of local school district administrators are not native to Lebanon County? What one could derive from that fact is that our public school systems being run by these out-of-towners aren’t producing students who go on to become school administrators.
Bruce Kilmoyer, Jr. flies directly into the face of that trend.
Kilmoyer, a 1989 graduate of Lebanon High School, recently became the athletic director at Red Land High School, part of the West Shore school district in Harrisburg. A long-time Lebanon County sports official, Kilmoyer is a former ninth-grade history teacher at Manheim Central High School.
Kilmoyer, who graduated from Millersville University with a degree in social studies, earned his master’s degree in sports management/athletic administration from Millersville in 2003. He taught social studies at Manheim Central from 2000 to 2011.
While at Manheim Central, Kilmoyer coached junior-high basketball, JV baseball and freshman football. Kilmoyer has been in his current position at Red Land for about a year now.
But Kilmoyer is best know locally for his officiating work in football and baseball. He still officiates senior and junior American legion baseball in Lebanon County over the summer months, as well as the occasional Lebanon Valley Midget Football League game.
“It is something that I still very much enjoy,” said Kilmoyer, “because I feel that all levels of sport deserve good officiating.”
Kilmoyer also possesses extensive experience officiating college football on the Division Two and Division Three levels, and has also worked softball contests on the scholastic level.
