Dr. Joe Bordeaux, Chairman of the LASE Board of Directors, recently announced that Chris Tomlinson, B.S. Ed., MA has accepted the position of Acting Director of LASE.

Chris was asked by the LASE Board to step in and fill the role of Acting Director in October after the passing of our former Executive Director, Lori Christiansen.

Chris is well-qualified for these new responsibilities having served LASE for the past 16 years as a resource teacher at Zion Lutheran School in St. Charles and, most recently, in the leadership role of Assistant Director of LASE. The Board is thrilled that Chris has accepted these additional responsibilities and is continuing the strong leadership LASE is known for while we search for a new Executive Director.
