Board of Education Appoints Angela Christensen to Fill Board Vacancy

Congratulations to Angela Christensen, who was chosen to serve the remainder of Carrie Warren-Gully’s term on the LPS Board of Education. The Board virtually interviewed 15 candidates for the vacancy on the LPS Board of Education during its February 11, 2021 meeting. During the February 25, 2021 meeting, the Board then discussed candidates, narrowed choices, and ultimately chose Ms.Christensen. 

Ms. Christensen is very involved in both the district and the community. She has served on many district committees and organizations within Littleton Public Schools, volunteering over 8,000 hours of her time. She has served as the president of PTO Presidents Council, co-chaired the Yes on 4C mill levy override campaign in 2020, served on the Financial Advisory Committee and the LPS Foundation Board of Directors, and she has been an active member of PTOs and accountability committees at her children’s schools. She also volunteers for various non-profit organizations serving the underprivileged as well as elders through Nourish Meals on Wheels. She has done contract and consulting work for DenverWorks, a local non-profit that empowers the unemployed and those with barriers to employment to become self-supporting through job placement and preparation. Ms. Christensen has twin boys attending LPS schools.

“I want to thank all candidates for their interest in serving on the Board. We enjoyed the interview process and were truly impressed with you,” said Board President Jack Reutzel. “This was a great group of people who care about this community’s children and their education. I encourage all of you to run for a seat on the Board in November.”

A vacancy was left on the Board when Carrie Warren-Gully resigned her seat in December due to time commitments. Ms. Warren-Gully was elected to the Arapahoe County Commission for District 1 this past November. 

Ms. Christensen will be sworn in at the March 11, 2021 Board of Education meeting and will serve the remainder of the term through November 2021. All Board meetings are live streamed for the public.
