Dana Krueger appointed to Lakewood Board of Directors

DanaAt the Lakewood School Board meeting on April 20, Superintendent Scott Peacock administered the oath of office to its newest School Board Director, Dana Krueger.

The Board appointed Krueger as Director of District #3 after she applied for the position in March following Director Jahna Smith’s resignation from the board on Jan. 29. Her term lasts through 2023. 

Krueger grew up in Arlington, Wash., where she graduated from Arlington High School. She received her degree in Biomedical Engineering from The Johns Hopkins University and now works at Raytheon Technologies. She and her husband, Keith, have lived in the Lakewood School District for 22 years, where they have enjoyed volunteering their time to support youth activities.

She has three children who have attended, or are currently attending, Lakewood schools, including a son who graduated in 2020 and is studying Aerospace Engineering at Cal Poly, a daughter who is about to graduate and plans to study Design and Engineering in college next year, and another daughter who is a freshman at Lakewood High School.

“I am really looking forward to serving the Lakewood community in this role. I believe that all kids deserve a safe, inclusive, and high-quality educational experience. I will work hard to ensure Lakewood schools are a place where every student can succeed.”
