A longtime community volunteer is now the newest member of the Washougal School Board.
Jocelyn Lindsay, 41, was appointed to the position vacated by Terri Hutchins, who moved out of her director district. Lindsay will serve in this role through 2015.
“I’m looking forward to working with the school district,” she said. “I care deeply for Washougal. I believe in quality education for the children of our community.”
Lindsay is past president and current foundation president of the Camas-Washougal Rotary Club. She has co-chaired several of its programs, including the Ducky Derby and the Young Women in Action at Hathaway Elementary School.
The Hathaway program takes fifth-grade girls and pairs them with an adult female mentor. It runs for several weeks and includes career planning, etiquette, beauty treatments, financial education and more.
Lindsay is also a member of the Columbia Gorge Women’s Association, a local organization that raises funds to send women back to school.
