For School Board Recognition Month, LKSD will feature a profile on each of our Regional Board Members. 

Deanna Latham is one of our newest Board Members. She is also another one of our LKSD born and raised on the current Board. She holds Seat F, representing Bethel.

She stated, “My husband and I moved back to the region in 2008. We wanted to raise a family here so that our children could attend a school in a district with strong a Yup’ik language program.  As our sons became of school age, I became involved in the Ayaprun Elitnaurvik’s APC board in 2015, and then was encouraged by friends and colleagues to apply for the District Board. I was appointed in April of 2016 and elected in October 2016.”

Mrs. Latham wants to see all of our students succeed. She believes that each and every child has gifts and talents that they can harness and explore to fine their niche in the world. She says, “It is our job to help them discover the tools to succeed in whatever they choose. I am also very proud of how the District has prioritized Yup’ik language and culturally relevant education.”
