PGA nominations for the 2022-2023 school year

Are you interested in a leadership role in the PGA next school year? Are there other Lakeside parents and guardians you would recommend for a PGA leadership role? In early January, we will email a short survey to indicate your interest or to nominate others or you can click here. We encourage all parents and guardians to fill out the survey. Survey responses will be used by the PGA nominations committee to nominate volunteers to fill leadership roles on next year's PGA board, including the executive committee.

The nominations committee is comprised of fellow parents and guardians with the goal to assemble a board that is balanced across grades, diverse in skills and experience levels, and representative of Lakeside School's diverse community. We're pleased to introduce the committee:

Lisa Batten P’29
Karin Butler P’22, ‘23, ‘27, ‘29
Debbie Conway P’23
Neha Dalmia P’23, ‘27
Joel Jacobs P’26

Richard Kang P’28
Jennifer Lane P’26, ‘26
Sheilah Mbatai P’24
