Lisa Foust started as the district’s new transportation manager on Monday, August 5, 2019. Foust was most recently a transportation location manager for First Student. She first worked for First Student in Coffeyville, Kansas in 2015 before being relocated to a larger fleet of buses in Council Bluffs, Iowa in 2018.
“Lisa has an extensive background in student transportation and I'm excited for her to join our team,” said director of operations Jim Langevin.
Foust said she was interested to work for Brooklyn Center Community Schools because it’s a small community in the heart of the city. She is also excited to work in a school district setting.
“I love the idea of being a part of something larger than myself,” Foust said. “To be able to inspire students to go for their dreams and to achieve them no matter what.”
Foust’s main focus for this school year is to have the transportation department fully staffed and operating at its highest capacity. When she’s not at work, Foust enjoys spending time with her family, cooking with her daughter, and planning an upcoming trip to England.
