Board of Directors
Leslie has served on the MCS Board of Directors since 2011. Her daughter Rose attended MCS from kindergarten through 8th grade and is now a student at Moscow High School. Leslie also represents charter schools on the Idaho School Boards Association Executive Board. Idaho is the first state in the country to allow charter schools full representation in its school boards association! If you’ve seen Leslie around town, she was probably being walked by her dog Bear.Why I chose to be a board member?
“My daughter Rose was having such a great experience as a student at MCS, and I was looking for a way to give back to the school and its hard-working staff. The school was facing some significant challenges at that time due to state funding cuts and it has been rewarding to help set it back on a secure footing. Since then we have added two grades and are working on expanding our facilities. We have a great team of staff and board members and it is an honor to work with them.”
John has a long history of working with public education. He served on the Board of Trustees with the Troy School District for twelve years and served on the Board of Directors of the Idaho School Boards Association for eight years, serving as the President of the ISBA during his last year as a board member. John brings a passion for education and a desire to offer students the best educational opportunities possible. In his spare time, John enjoys hunting, camping and riding his four wheeler.
"I am excited to be a member of the Board of Directors for MCS because we strive to set a quality, well rounded educational foundation for our students. I believe that one of the greatest services that one can offer to others is to ensure that today’s students are prepared for tomorrow’s world. MCS offers that with a nurturing classroom environment and a staff that is dedicated to excellence. I am honored to be a part of such a great team. I look forward to the great things that the future holds in store for MCS and our students."
