A Focus on the Future
LISA F indesign t3 (1).jpg


     Like many people, LCC has had a significant impact on my life and I understand the critical role the college plays in our community.  I attended LCC to start pursuing my dream of becoming a teacher.  That coursework was pivotal in building my confidence and introduced a love of learning that I still have today.


I am excited to announce my run for re-election to the LCC board this May 2023. 

     I've also benefitted from the Dental Hygiene program at LCC.  When I didn’t have health insurance, and greatly needed dental care, I was able to access this care through LCC’s Dental Hygiene program.  I know first hand what an incredible resource LCC is for Lane County and I'm interested in continuing to serve on the LCC Board of Education because I'm invested in the growth and development of this resource as a vital part of our community. 

     I was originally appointed to the LCC Board of Education in November 2018 in a selection process that included fifteen applicants and then successfully ran for election to the LCC Board in May of 2019.  I served as LCC Board Chair for two years during the COVID-19 pandemic and worked diligently for Lane County’s residents to maintain access to the college’s educational resources.  I also led the successful search for LCC’s new president, Dr. Stephanie Bulger, including an extensive public engagement process.  

     Anyone who knows me will tell you I am hard working, committed to education as a vision for greater social equity, and passionate about helping to make our state a great place to live.  I hope all of you will support me in my re-election to the Lane Community College Board of Education.    

With much appreciation,

Lisa Fragala

A Focus on the Future

As an educator for over 25 years, I know it is important for all members of our community to have access to a vibrant education system and I understand how this promotes the economic vitality of our region.  When I first started out on my own career path as a teacher, Lane Community College was that access point for me.  I recognize how necessary LCC is as the community’s college.  That’s why I’m excited to continue as a member of the LCC board and to work hard to ensure that Lane Community College continues to be a vibrant and accessible place of learning for Lane County.


Embrace Innovation 

Lane County is home to numerous people, institutions, and businesses that look to Oregon as a great place to live, work and learn. Lane Community College needs to embrace an innovative spirit and ensure the college is an educational leader at all levels.  The LCC board should be a leader in promoting innovation at the college and advocate for creativity in decision making.

Student Success

As an educator, I understand what students need to be successful. Lane is already a great place to learn, but we can do better.  I'll work to reinvigorate academic pathways and work to see LCC grow as a workforce hub that allows Lane's students to launch the careers they want to be successful.

Lane Community College is deeply connected to the region’s economic vitality. Our local communities require a highly skilled workforce, and businesses and companies are constantly evaluating LCC on its capacity to provide workforce training. The college must engage and collaborate with local industry, business and community needs. The college represents a vital center of employment and important economic development.
