As an alum, School Board Director Leaha Boser had a special connection to the Lakewood community. She saw an opportunity to give back to that community when a Board position opened in 2019, and she decided to apply. During her last meeting on November 1, her fellow board members pointed to her big heart and passion for doing what is best for kids. Board member Dana Krueger said Boser has led positive changes in the district, especially around her passion for making sure kids are fed and increasing school food options at mealtimes.
