Meet the Candidates: Lindsay Dahlheimer

I am honored and thrilled to be running for a seat on the Board of Education. My husband Michael and I have lived in Durham since 2016, with our twin boys, who attend RSD13.

A native of Vermont, I ventured off to Boston for college and graduated with a BA in Psychology from Emmanuel College, where I was a four-year student-athlete, competing in both soccer and track and field. I was also an elected Executive Board Member for our Student Government Association. 

Since moving to Durham I have been a volunteer den leader with Pack 33 Cub Scouts and am Booster Director for Durham-Middlefield Falcons Football and Cheerleading. Also, I am a member of Durham's Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Committee and Recreation Committee.

My community involvement combined with active advocacy for my children's education in RSD13 have given me a front row seat to the serious issues the district has faced and will face in the future.

I look forward to providing and fostering a transparent environment where our students, teachers, parents and community members feel welcome and heard on all issues.
