Board of Trustees

Lamplighter is forever grateful for the decades of service by its past, present and future Trustees. These men and women are custodians of the integrity of the Lamplighter School institution and of its standing and reputation built by the founders and those who have labored over the years.
Twenty-six (26) Trustees and fifteen (15) Life Trustees hold “in trust” the school’s future as well as its present. The Board reflects strength, vision, experience, and knowledge of the surrounding educational community, as well as a blending of educational, managerial, investment, business, and legal talents.
