Christy Tveit has been looking for her place in the community since she moved to Lakeview around three years ago. While her husband, Charlie Tveit, is the CEO of Lake District Hospital, she has spent time on the board of directors at the Crisis Center, is president of the Hospital Auxiliary, and is a member of the Soroptimist International of Lakeview.
She became acquainted with the Innovation and Learning Center project through her husband’s involvement with the project and the other local figures that helped come up with and realize the idea.
Near the end of last June, a dinner was held for those interested in the ILC to meet and help raise awareness of the project. Tveit and her husband attended, meeting the current KCC Pres. Roberto Gutierrez, who happened to be looking for someone to advise and coordinate future students and programs associated with the ILC.
