2014/2015 Board of Directors:
LESA’s Board of Directors is comprised of active Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod congregation members who have a passion for children, Lutheran education, and LESA’s mission. These men and women have a variety of backgrounds including active and retired business owners and executives, nonprofit leaders, pastors, missionaries, and educators. These directors set policy and oversee governance, programming, and operations of LESA. In addition to their governance roles, board members serve on the fund development and marketing and event committees and volunteer at LESA functions. Two of LESA’s board members are Advisory Directors who serve as administrators of LESA-member schools; their role is to keep the Board apprised of the St. Louis metropolitan area Lutheran education environment and provide a point of reference on educational issues.
