LBCA COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP AWARD
Principal, West Elementary School
The LBCA recognizes Sandra Schneider for her community leadership efforts on behalf of families and children of West School. A one-story building, West School was so severely damaged after Hurricane Sandy that it had to be closed, students were relocated to temporary schools, and a large portion of the student population was displaced from their homes. Teamwork and a love for the students and school were evident; Sandra’s championed efforts and tireless dedication to both eventually led to the re-opening of the much needed neighborhood school.
