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

Wassilie Pleasant holds Seat D on the LKSD Board. He shares representation with Seat C for the villages of Atmautluak, Kasigluk (Akuik Memorial School and Akula Elitnaurvik), Kwethluk, Napakiak, Napaskiak, Nunapitchuk, Oscarville and Tuntutuliak.

Mr. Pleasant was elected to the Board in October of 2011, 2013 and again in 2016. His home is in Nunapitchuk.

Mr. Pleasant was motivated to run for the School Board because he wants our kids within the District to get a good education and he wants to see more Yup’ik teachers employed at LKSD in the near future. He feels that our teachers do well at sites with good support from the District. Mr. Pleasant takes the time to visit the schools he represents and he talks a lot with the students about respect and tells them if they listen good, they will do good.

LogoMr. Pleasant’s hobby is getting wood and subsistence. He spends a lot of time outdoors.

Wasslile is our rock star Board Member. Although he isn’t a member of a specific rock group, he does play lead guitar for music events.
