Linda Sanchez-Gazella

Community Outreach Specialist

Linda Sanchez-Gazella is the community outreach specialist for the Lansing School District. In this position, she works with Lansing Community College, Michigan State University and Davenport to bring beneficial programs such as workshops or family events into the Lansing school district. But she doesn’t only work with colleges. When the Lansing State Journal came to her and wanted to start a Journalism program in the Lansing School District, Sanchez-Gazella made sure it was in line with what the school system wants to accomplish. She helped the Lansing State Journal start a journalism program at both Everett and Eastern High Schools. She also provides workshops on reading, internet safety, affordable health care, FAFSA, as well as family fun events focused on literacy to Lansing schools. Her office provides resources for anyone involved with caring for students, from teachers and aides to parents and caregivers. When she’s not working to improve schools, she spends her time with her husband or catching up with her grandchildren.
