Saving Lansing Eastern High School

LANSING — It’s Friday morning at Lansing Eastern High School, and Principal Donna Pohl doesn’t have a second to spare. In just the last 30 minutes of her busy morning, Pohl has worked on a task on LEHS’s third floor, made her way back down for the morning announcements and is already on her way to complete the day’s next mission. “Let’s walk and talk. We multitask around here,” she says as she makes her way to set up for in-school truancy court before she’s scheduled to meet with someone in a little over 10 minutes. “As the leader of this building, I have a lot of hats to wear.”

This is a sight that can be seen a lot these days at Lansing Eastern High School.
