Brian Warmup School Board recognitionHCCSC and the Board of School Trustees recognized Brian Warpup at the Dec. 19, 2022, meeting for his eight years of service on the Board of School Trustees.

Warpup, who served in District 3, chose to not run for his position again in light of running for the Huntington County Council, which he was elected to in the recent election.

“I spent eight years on the school board and if I could do it all over again, I would,” Warpup said. “The last six years have been by far the most rewarding because of the members of the board. We didn’t always agree on certain decisions, but at the end of the day, we supported each other and respected our differences. Closing Lancaster and Northwest and reopening Horace Mann was something that I literally lost sleep over because it affected so many families. It was the correct decision to make for the longevity of the school district, but it felt heavy as we went through the process. Going though COVID-19 and the day-to-day decisions that came with that was probably the most stressful. I was so proud of the fact that we never canceled school during the 2020–21 year and had 100% in-person learning. I’m thankful I had the opportunity to serve my community in this way and I hope I helped steer HCCSC in the correct direction to make a positive impact moving forward.”

Warpup, a 1991 graduate of Huntington North High School, noted that among the most notable accomplishments of the Board of School Trustees during his tenure were the implementation of 1:1 technology, the relocation of the Huntington North multi-purpose outdoor facility and the expansion of the Huntington County Community Learning Center.

“Throughout my career as a superintendent, I have had the opportunity to work with many outstanding school board members, and Mr. Warpup is truly one of these outstanding board members,” said Superintendent John Trout. “Mr. Warpup wants what is best for the students, staff and entire HCCSC school community, while also be fiscally responsible with his decisions. He was a school board member who thoroughly studied and examined each and every agenda item prior to voting, and I appreciated his thought-provoking questions that he would ask me when he was requesting additional information or clarification. Mr. Warpup served his students and constituents well, and I am proud of him and his leadership.”

In addition to his new County Council role, Warpup is a self-employed grain farmer. Warpup lives in Warren with his wife, Nicole, who is a teacher at Salamonie Elementary School. Brian and Nicole have three children, Ben (23), Hannah (20) and Maleah (16).
