When Corinne Benson joined our staff last July as Business Manager, it was our intention that she would grow into a strong school leader. Ms. Rood’s departure at the end of December allowed us to rethink our division of labor, create new titles and promote Corinne to be our Director of Administration. She has demonstrated a level of professionalism and care in her role and will continue to be successful at LHS. Her skill set and acumen are an incredible asset to our lead team. Congratulations, Corinne!
