Portrait of Laura Manuel






Laura Manuel

My connections to Shasta County schools are as a journalist, parent and board member. I was the education reporter for the Record Searchlight in the early 1980s and returned to covering school issues the final year of my three-decade newspaper career. My daughter and son attended Redding schools from kindergarten through high school (my adventures during their school years included Cub Scout den mother, Odyssey of the Mind coach and music boosters volunteer). With an interest in education and community service, I applied to fill a vacancy on the Board of Education and was appointed in December 2014. I take pride in being on the board. Education is opportunity – key to individual success and the well-being of the community. Contact me at lmanuel@shastacoe.org
