Rising Stars Preschool Board Meetings

Rising Stars Preschool Board Meetings take place every third Tuesday of the month @ 6:15pm. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend; meetings are always open! Come learn more about our
non-profit preschool, how we operate and what it means to be a board member. Without our volunteer board members, our preschool would not be able to operate as a non-profit and provide the essential
services that we do.

We are seeking board members! If interested, please contact us at (541)536-8362 or .

My husband and I both attended and graduated from LaPine. We have two children, Mackenzie and Tyson. They both attend LaPine Elementary School. In my free time, I enjoy riding my horse, Holly, and camping/traveling with my family. I work for a virtual public charter school as the Assistant Director of Special Education. I look forward to continuing to serve students at Rising Stars Preschool and the community of LaPine.

I am a stay at home mom to three amazing and rambunctious boys. In my free time, you can find my family and I outdoors either wheeling or finding new places to make memories. I am excited to work with all of the families of our amazing kids at Rising Stars Preschool.

The older two both attended Rising Stars Preschool for two years each and Logan is currently enrolled. In our free time we love to be outdoors, and our boys are very involved in south central little league. We spend A LOT of time at the ball fields. I am new to the board of rising stars and am so excited to give back to the community that has given so much to me in the past.

My name is McKenzie Walsworth. I am a senior at Oregon State University Cascades and I will be graduating this spring with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. I am currently working at an infant and toddler Montessori School in Bend as a Teacher’s Assistant and plan to either have a career in accounting or someday own a business. I am also tutoring a family member and have proudly accepted the volunteer Treasurer position for Rising Stars Preschool.
