As a volunteer and then school board member, Long Grove resident Lori Lyman was all in when it came to Stevenson High School.

"My whole family has volunteered. To me, it's really important you embrace that position on the school board, and your family is part of it as well," said Lyman, who resigned from the District 125 board effective July 9.

She said she considers herself fortunate to have been "a meaningful part of such a successful institution."

Lyman was appointed to a vacancy in August 2008 and elected to a four-year term that expires in April 2013.

The landscape architect, who is known for her interest and commitment to green issues, said she is leaving to pursue other interests, such as travel, as her youngest daughter just graduated from Stevenson.

"We're going to be empty nesters this fall," she said. "It was time for me to move on. There were some other things in my life I wanted to get involved in."

Lyman became known to the Stevenson community for her designs of projects for feeder schools. She served on the Stevenson High School Foundation board of directors and designed the Garden of Peace, Hope and Remembrance on the south end of campus, the art department's courtyard adjacent to the west building and an outdoor classroom that has yet to be built.

She also regularly spoke with architecture and engineering students about her field.

Anyone interested in filling the vacancy needs to be at least 18, a U.S. citizen, have lived in the district for one year and a registered voter. Applicants should send a letter to Nancy Wagner, nwagner@125.org or to 2 Stevenson Drive, Lincolnshire, 60069.

The letter should include: name, address, phone number, email address, educational background; occupational information as applicable, reasons for interest in the position and any other pertinent information. Candidates will be interviewed July 31.
