I had the pleasure of serving as a School Board student representative for two years (2006-2008) with Lori. At that time, the student representative position was still new to the district and Lori immediately made me feel included as a valuable member of the board. Lori always greeted me with a smile. She was one of the first people to explain concepts that I didn’t understand and provided details on how I would be impacted as a student. Lori genuinely cared about the student perspective, and I appreciated the coaching and support she provided as I began to voice my and my fellow classmates’ thoughts to the board.
I’ve known Lori since elementary school and was often classmates with her children. Whether Lori was a chaperone on one of my class field trips, a volunteer in my classroom, or making decisions on the Riverview School District School Board, she was always one of the first people to get involved and work towards positive change. I feel incredibly lucky to have known Lori throughout my youth and into my adulthood, and know she will continue to serve for the students as a passionate member of our local community.
