Vereta Tanner Lee Running for BESE District 8

Vereta Tanner Lee

My name is Vereta Tanner Lee and I am running for Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE), District 8. I have lived in District 8 all of my life. I was educated in the public schools in St. Helena Parish. I am a lifelong educator with four decades of experience teaching and mentoring elementary and middle school children. I served on the East Baton Rouge Parish School Board for 12 years. I am currently the Supervisor of Student Support Services for the City of Baker School System.

I am an advocate for Public Education and will continue to work hard to serve the parents, teachers and students of the educational system of District 8.

I am asking for your vote and prayers on October 12, 2019 for a chance to work for a great education for All Children in the state of Louisiana.

Thank you,

Vereta Tanner Lee #51

BESE District 8
