Oak Lawn Community High School is proud to announce that Principal Dr. Jeana Lietz will be inducted to the District 230 Legacy Hall. Dr. Lietz is a 1996 graduate of Sandburg High School and has served in several educational leadership roles throughout her career.
After beginning her career at Lincoln-Way High School District 210, Dr. Lietz joined the administrative team at OLCHS as the Assistant Principal for Curriculum in 2011 and became principal in 2016. Through her leadership, Dr. Lietz led OLCHS through the adoption of 1:1 technology, eventually earning recognition as an Apple Distinguished School. There are fewer than 500 schools worldwide that have this designation.
Due to her strong and visionary leadership, Dr. Lietz also serves as a member of the Apple Distinguished Schools Advisory Board. This Advisory Board is made up of nine principals of Apple Distinguished Schools from around the United States; it is truly an elite body of educators and sets Dr. Lietz apart as one of many outstanding District 230 alumni who have used their education and experience to become successful, positive contributors to society.
Oak Lawn Community High School administrators Joseph McCurdy and Lauren May nominated Dr. Lietz to the District 230 Legacy Hall. “Dr. Lauren May and I were excited to nominate Dr. Lietz in recognition of her ongoing work with technology integration, a focus on teaching and learning, and student engagement,” said McCurdy. “Dr. Lietz truly exemplifies the District 230 core mission of preparing students to realize their life-long potential in an ever-changing world. She is a dedicated instructional leader with a passion to embrace technology and best practices in education.”
Those selected are District 230 alumni who have not only achieved much in their chosen profession, but who have also given back, and who contribute to their community and society. Oak Lawn Community High School is very proud of this achievement and would like to congratulate Dr. Lietz!
