BOARD OF TRUSTEES

The Purpose of  Board of Trustees is to oversee the school and ensure the mission of the school is implemented. The Board consists of seven dedicated individuals who are committed to providing students a quality educational experience. Areas of board responsibility include: finances, curriculum, facilities, enrollment,  policy, information technology, theatrical performances, fundraising, faculty & staff outreach, personnel,  and creating a positive school environment. Board meetings are held the fourth Thursday of each month at 6:30PM. Parents are welcome to attend. The entire board may be contacted at board@lincoln-academy.org.

The board also acts as the school community council. The community council reviews and analyzes the student learning data, creates a plan to improve learning and allocates School Land Trust funds to implement elements of the plan. If you would like to attend any meetings the schedule is found on the school calendar. For more information about how the funds were spent you can review our stakeholders report.

Board Members

Cherstyn Stockwell

Fundraising


After graduating from BYU, Cherstyn lived in Washington, DC for ten years, working for members of both the House and the Senate. After Washington, she gained subsequent experience working with a Political Action Committee (PAC) in California, a PAC in Salt Lake City, then a think tank, The Sutherland Institute, and later joining their governing body, the GFC Foundation as Partner and Government Relations Manager. Cherstyn then joined Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) for three years as their Director of Development, and that experience led her and her husband to ultimately create a new non-profit charity called Dahlia’s Hope; a complete aftercare program here in Utah for survivors of sex trafficking. Cherstyn has served as a delegate in her local precinct, as Chair of her local high school’s Community Council, the Board of her children’s Charter School, and on the board of her children’s charter school. She and her husband, Matt, reside in Pleasant Grove and are the parents of six children.
