Serve Daily - - BUILDING COMMUNITY - By Lana Hiskey

Lisa Row­ley is now serv­ing as a mem­ber of the Nebo School Dis­trict Board of Ed­u­ca­tion.

Row­ley and her hus­band, Chad, have had many op­por­tu­ni­ties to vol­un­teer and serve in pub­lic schools. Lisa was in­volved in the PTA on a school and dis­trict level and has also served as a room mother and on School Com­mu­nity Coun­cils at the ele­men­tary, ju­nior high and high school lev­els. She also served on the Nebo Ed­u­ca­tion Foun­da­tion Board as vice pres­i­dent. Lisa en­joyed work­ing at San­taquin Ele­men­tary School in the ESL pro­gram for 12 years.

“I be­lieve that our chil­dren need the in­put and sup­port of par­ents in con­junc­tion with teach­ers and ad­min­is­tra­tion in or­der for stu­dents to suc­ceed. The board has the re­spon­si­bil­ity to sup­port the good things that are hap­pen­ing within our dis­trict - sup­port the out­stand­ing ed­u­ca­tors and ad­min­is­tra­tors and also look for ways to con­tin­u­ally im­prove the qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion in our schools. Our com­mu­nity and busi­nesses can be a great re­source, we need to en­cour­age their sup­port and in­put,” Row­ley said.

“I am very sup­port­ive of pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion. I know it’s not a per­fect in­sti­tu­tion, but Nebo has served our com­mu­nity well in the past. I ex­pect it to con­tinue to go for­ward in a pos­i­tive way. Pub­lic Ed­u­ca­tion has the re­spon­si­bil­ity to pre­pare stu­dents with skills they will need to suc­ceed in life. It’s a rather daunt­ing task! For our pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion to be suc­cess­ful, it re­quires a team ef­fort of ed­u­ca­tors, fam­i­lies, and the com­mu­nity. I look for­ward to be­ing a part of the Nebo School Board,” she said.

Lisa and Chad Row­ley have raised six chil­dren on the fam­ily fruit farm in San­taquin. Lisa loves mu­sic, read­ing and spend­ing time with her fam­ily and 10 grand­chil­dren. They all en­joy hiking and run­ning to­gether. Chad and Lisa re­cently re­turned from serv­ing a three- year mis­sion in Piura, Peru, for The Church of Je­sus Christ of Lat­ter- day Saints, where Chad Row­ley served as mis­sion pres­i­dent.
