School Board welcomes two new members
At its annual reorganization on December 7, 2015, the Lampeter-Strasburg Board of School Directors inaugurated two new members: Mr. David Beiler and Mrs. Audra Spahn.
David Beiler was born and raised in Lancaster County, and his family currently lives in the District. He wanted to become a member of the school board so that he could have the opportunity to give back to L-S for the great job the administration, staff, and teachers have done.
"Being an advocate for all of the students in our district is a great honor," he says.
Beiler is the Vice President of sales at Dutchland, Inc. He is married to Keturah Beiler, and his three kids are Josh (an 11th grader at L-S), Ben, and Mariah. He enjoys cycling, spending time with family, traveling, and working on home improvement projects.
Beiler was appointed by the Board in November to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of Mr. Scott Riekers.

Audra Spahn wanted to become a member of the Lampeter-Strasburg School Board because of her passion for both the Lampeter-Strasburg School District and politics. Her husband, Judge Merrill Spahn , is a former L-S School Board member who had to resign from the position upon his election as a judge on the Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas. Spahn was hoping to be able to fill his vacancy and finish his term, but she was unable to because of illness at the time. However, she was elected in November, filling a seat vacated by Mr. John Hults. She is looking forward to be able to fill that position now.
She is an entrepreneur, and has started several businesses. She presently runs a company called Lancaster Linens. She is on several boards, including the steering committee for Lancaster's Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). Her husband is Judge Merrill Spahn and she has two daughters Cali and Georgia. She enjoys traveling, meeting new people, and learning new things. The Lampeter-Strasburg School District is proud to have these two new great additions to the board!
