The Kettle Moraine School District recently learned of the passing of Dr. Earl Brakken, former superintendent in the district. Brakken died on September 7, 2020, at the age of 89. He is survived by his six children, the three youngest being KM alumni.
Dr. Brakken served KMSD from August 1978 through July 1991, before retiring to Cable, WI. Dr. Brakken was known for attracting innovative and forward-thinking educators to serve KM and his leadership has left an indelible mark. Our thoughts are with his family.
