Lisa Long is originally from Colorado, where she graduated from Campion Academy. She and her family have lived in Hutchinson, MN for the past 15 years. Her husband works for the Hutchinson Hospital and she has a son who is a sophomore at MWA and a daughter who is a student at Northwoods Elementary School. For the last four years she had the opportunity of being a hall mom in the girls’ dorm, an experience she thoroughly enjoyed getting to spend time with the girls, building them up, leading them spiritually, and helping them through their struggles. It was through this experience that she realized she had a passion for working with teenagers and that she definitely felt God’s leading in bringing her here to Maplewood Academy as the Girls’ Assistant Dean.
