Meet our School Board

Howard Johnson

Since moving to Roseburg in 1989, Rev. Howard Johnson has made it his mission to work as a problem-solver in the community. He often found himself called upon by community leaders, including local educators, to share his insights and vastly different life experiences. He brought that same desire to be a part of the solution to the Roseburg School Board of Directors in 2015.

Charles Lee

Charles Lee remembers trying to sign up for an automotive class during his senior year in high school back in Minnesota. A school counselor told him that the school couldn’t afford to let hobby students into the class, only those who planned to pursue a career in the industry. He also remembers a time when schools didn’t put much effort into ensuring students who struggled academically would go on to graduate. 

He’s glad times have changed.
