It's an honor and privilege to support Lincoln Public Schools and its 41,000+ students. Although we have a high-achieving district, 46% of students live in poverty. There's a tremendous opportunity to help students across the city. Tax dollars are important for operations, but private dollars provide additional resources that help students learn and succeed.
I couldn't be more excited to work with our board members and with the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools to make this happen. We have several new members on the 2019-20 Board—Patrick Beans, Brent Comstock, Anne Loudon, Britta Muhleisen, John Olsson, Dr. Vann Price and Natalia Wiita—who are joining a talented and passionate Board. Together, we are proud to support the needs of students across the district.
Jim Townsend, Board Chair, FLPS
P.S. Please reach out to any of the board members if you have a question on how you can support FLPS, would like to learn more about what FLPS does, or would like to ask one of us to speak at an event or to a group.
