Ralf began his journey in Westminster as a 5th grade student at Anderson Elementary shortly after moving to the United States from Germany. He attended Warner Middle School and then Westminster High School. After high school, Ralf was hired by Westminster School District and has been here ever since.
Ralf’s co-workers and friends describe him as “meticulous.” They say that his truck is like a mobile hardware store and his tools are always perfect. His breadth of knowledge regarding the District is amazing as well and he acts as historian.
Ralf is always looking for ways to help students and staff. In fact, years ago when he saw that students’ backpacks were getting kicked around and damaged on the ground, he outfitted every school with backpack hangers. He was ahead of his time, as this is now standard operating procedure everywhere. Ralf has always demonstrated a great work ethic, integrity, and honesty. His abilities far exceed his job description, which makes him an invaluable employee.
When Ralf is not at work, he enjoys music, football, and riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle, which is also described as meticulous. Ralf enjoys spending time with his two boys and his wife, who was also his high school sweetheart.
The Westminster School District Board of Trustees, Superintendent and entire District, thank Ralf for the commitment, dedication and passion he has demonstrated throughout his 40 years of service. We are fortunate to have him and he has certainly made the Westminster School District a better place!
