Meet the candidates

Lind Brown-Wren: My wife and I have 3 children and live in East Lansing. I graduated from East Lansing High School and Michigan State University. I am the Building Manager of Salus Center, our local LGBTQIA+ community center. I am a board member of the Red Cedar Family Council at Red Cedar Elementary School. I was a Girl Scout Leader for over 6 years and helped my daughter’s middle school form a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA). I believe that it is my duty and privilege to serve my community by representing children and families like mine.

Terah Chambers:  I am a Black woman who grew up in Minnesota, attending a school district with very similar demographics to ELPS. I live in East Lansing in the Glencairn neighborhood with my husband Glenn and son Langston. Langston is a 6th grader at MacDonald and Glenn is a History Professor in the MSU College of Social Science and also an Associate Dean in the MSU Honors College. I have served on the ELPS school board for the last five years. In my “day job” I’m a professor at MSU where I work with current and aspiring principals, superintendents and central office administrators. I also work as an Associate Dean where I support diversity, equity, and inclusion across campus. I have worked in support of public education for the last 20 years and consider it an essential part of who I am.
