My name is Heather Reiter, and my husband, Mike, and I have been in Lake St Louis for 20 years. We are raising our 3 daughters, Megan, a Sophomore at Timberland, Ashley, an 8th grader at South Middle, and Taylor, a 5th grader at Green Tree, in a community we absolutely love!

I’m running for the Board of Education because I want to be a voice for the parents and community members in the district. Let’s work together ~ Parents, Teachers, Administrators ~ to get the best education in an optimal learning environment for our students in the Wentzville District. I am a strong proponent for public education, I’m IN the schools with children at each level, and I see the district going in the right direction, and I want the opportunity to improve on that and continue the positive momentum.

I am a past Board of Education member, so I understand the time and dedication that’s required to not only, do the job, but to do it right! I am active with the PTO’s, sitting on the Green Tree board for 10 years and the South Middle board for the past 2 years. I also currently sit on the Lake St Louis Ski Board and the Wentzville Women’s Lacrosse board. Having an active role in the community is very important to me, and I truly believe that every great community has a great school district ~ and this is what I want to be a part of, because we only have ONE chance to educate a child!
