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

Jonathan Lewis is from Chefornak, and holds Seat B, representing the villages of Chefornak, Kipnuk, Kwigillingok and Mekoryuk.

Mr. Lewis likes being able to help students achieve the best possible education money can buy, and to work as a team to make facilities and infrastructures work well so that educators and facilitators can work efficiently to provide education to our young students and generations to come. What motivated him to be on the LKSD Board was the fact that our young people need the best education, and if he can contribute a positive work environment to all schools in our region he believes students can receive the best education.

One issue that is close to Mr. Lewis’ heart is technology. He stated, “It is becoming a widely used resource today, use of computers and social media has exploded for the past few years. I believe students can learn so much with the use of technology in everyday lives. Technology is also bridging the gap between traditional knowledge and western culture.”

logoJonathan is a strong believer in the traditional way of life, and he practices it and applies all his knowledge and experience in every day life. He said, “Doing the best I can to help others achieve whatever they pursue in life is what drives me to accomplish that goal. Perceiving things with a positive attitude despite all the negativity we face in our day to day lives and dealing with it in a productive way, helps to always see the good in every person we meet.”
