Alan Ahrman has served as the director representing District 4, Pendleton and Campbell counties, since 2011. A native of Campbell County, Alan, graduated from Western Kentucky University with his education degree; from Northern Kentucky University with his master’s degree; and the University of Cincinnati with his rank one. Now retired, Alan spent his career as a teacher at Campbell County High School and as principal at Grant’s Lick Elementary School.
In addition to his work within the school system, Alan enjoys being active within his church, Grant’s Lick Baptist. He is also a life-long farmer and specializes in freezer beef sales. True to his agricultural roots and interests, Alan spent 20 years as an officer with the Campbell County Conservation District and remains involved in his local beef association and Cooperative Extension programs.
“I’ve enjoyed my tenure with the Cooperative because I’ve learned a whole new business,” Alan said. “I’ve also enjoyed meeting and working with directors from around the state, and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to serve on the board and work with current directors to make Owen Electric successful.”
An avid backpacker, Alan has backpacked in most of the major national parks and in three foreign countries. His highlight: a 3-week trip on the John Muir trail covering 220 miles.
Alan is married to Peggy, and they have three children— Jim, Larry, and Jill, and five grandchildren— Sam and Maddie Ahrman, and Emma, Lucy, and George Sowards.
