My children have attended Lakewood for the past 10 years and I have always been involved in Lakewood Parent Club. I then became parent club president for three years. My philosophy when I was Parent Club President was, "Put Students First." I still believe that to be true. I also believe that it is imperative that the board work together with the parents of Lakewood to meet the needs of the students and make everyone feel comfortable participating in activities and events. I feel my experience of having been Parent Club president gives me insight on what is necessary to help Lakewood be the amazing school that it is. If I am voted in as Lakewood Parent Club president I promise to listen to all ideas and concerns brought to the Parent Club Board. I think working together to build a strong and united Parent club for our children is and should continue to be our number one priority.
