Laura Kiebler, Peace Kids Director

Laura began her career in childcare almost 10 years ago so she could be closer to her son.  She helped her previous center go from minimum licensing to Better Beginnings Level three. Her arrival at PeaceKids in July 2015 has given her an opportunity to help children in her community.  Her mission is to provide a family-like, Christian environment for all staff, families and their children.

Ernest Whitmore, Organist and Choir Director, is a longtime leader in the musical scene of Northwest Arkansas. He and other family members taught at John Brown University for many years, and he also teaches at the University of Arkansas. He studied organ performance at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, with special focus on the Lutheran heritage of sacred music.
