EUGENE, Ore. -- A member of the Lane Community College school board is up for re-election.

As a member of the school board, Lisa Fragala is tasked with overseeing the success of the college which Mayor Lucy Vinis said is vital for the success of the community.

"LCC is of critical importance to our community, both as a source of education and as an economic driver for our community," Vinis said.

Fragala is a second-grade teacher at Adams Elementary School in Eugene. After a board member stepped down last year, she was apointed to the LCC school board. She attended LCC to pursue a degree in education and she now sees being on the board as a way to give back to the community.

"What it means to me is that I get to serve in a capacity that makes sure everybody has the ability to reach their full potental," Fragala said. "No matter what type of student you are. No matter what part of the community you come from. I see it as part of my values and my commitment to make sure eveyone can reach their full potential no matter who they are."

An event on Sunday attracted dozens of people from all over the community, who were there to support and donate to Fragala's re-election. She is running on a platform that aims to embrace innovation, ensure student success and sustain regional economic vitality.

Fragala's seat, as well as three others, are up for election in the Lane County special election happening in May.
