New Board Member: Lisa Smart

Dixon Hall is pleased to welcome Lisa Smart to our Board of Directors.

Lisa has lived in the Regent Park community for over 20 years and refers to herself as an arts enthusiast and youth education advocate.

After graduating from Central Technical High School in 2007, she was awarded a full scholarship to the University of Toronto where she studied English and Women & Gender Studies. However, it was her involvement with student advocacy groups such as the Black Students’ Association and Equity Studies Student Union, as well as volunteering at her old high school that sparked Lisa’s interest in education and community development, especially for youth in communities like Regent Park.

After receiving her Bachelors degree from the University of Toronto in 2011, Lisa worked at Pathways to Education’s Regent Park site. In her current position as the Outreach and Programs Coordinator at Daniels Spectrum she has the opportunity to work collaboratively with various Regent Park agencies including Dixon Hall, to deliver a roster of programs and events geared towards children and youth in the community, allowing her to blend her passion for community arts, development and education, especially amongst children and youth.

In her spare time Lisa loves listening to Hip-Hop and Neo-Soul music, reading autobiographies, watching movies and eating cheese pizza.

We are thrilled to have Lisa join our Board and look forward to working with her to serve even more people in our community than ever before.
