Project Lolo Appoints Lisa Cartwright, Educator, as Director and Secretary

Non-Profit Organization Taps Veteran Elementary STEM Educator as Director and Secretary

Minneapolis, Minn. –May 8, 2018 – Lisa Cartwright, Wilshire Park Elementary STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Educator, was recently appointed to the Board of Directors of Project Lolo, to serve through 2018.

“It is a privilege to be able to serve with Ms. Pitt Schneider and the other talented members of the Project Lolo Board of Directors,” said Mrs. Cartwright. “I’ve seen first-hand in my career how children with disabilities can be marginalized in systems that aim to serve able-bodied children and I’m confident that Project Lolo can bring some hope to children in need. Participating in Leslie’s dream of helping children with disabilities and limb loss has already been a memorable experience.”

Project Lolo is a global, non-profit organization headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, dedicated to helping provide access to orthopedic medical care and orthopedic devices, such as prosthetic limbs or wheelchairs to children. Project Lolo was founded in 2017 under the assertion that no child should ever be denied their right to life, healthcare, education or dignity because of their differing orthopedic abilities.

Leslie Pitt Schneider, Founder and President of Project Lolo, said, “As an experienced, elementary educator, Lisa brings a unique perspective to Project Lolo, both in its mission and purpose. She understands how children think about themselves and about the world, which helps us be the ‘voice’ for the children we serve.”

Lisa Cartwright brings over twenty-five years of elementary education experience to the organization. She holds undergraduate and master’s degrees in Pre-Kindergarden through sixth grade elementary education and teaching. Mrs. Cartwright’s experience includes instruction in private and public-school settings. She has extensive experience teaching coding to elementary aged students and has been a member of the Science Museum of Minnesota NEXUS team for eight years. This group focuses on improving access to and equity in STEM education. Mrs. Cartwright’s passion for helping children lends itself well to Project Lolo’s mission and she envisions the scope of Project Lolo to not only benefit children directly impacted by differing orthopedic abilities, but additionally, other children, families, educators, school systems, and educational curricula. Lisa Cartwright resides in Saint Paul, Minnesota, with her family.
