Meet the Board
Leia works for the City of Eugene, leading the office of the Police Auditor, which provides community oversight of Eugene's police department. She received a wonderful education from independent schools, and she was drawn to Oak Hill to provide a similar educational experience for her two children. She has been part of the Oak Hill Community since 2018, and she was honored to join the Board in March of 2020. She was elected Board Chair in July of 2021, and she is deeply committed to the school and its success.
Dan comes to OHS after a career in consumer affairs and nonprofit organization administration. He retired in 2013 after 33 years at Consumer Reports in Yonkers, NY. His work there included working with the Board of Directors and advocacy offices, facilities planning, and business policies review. His last position there was Labor Relations Director and Ethics Officer. Prior to that he worked as a consumer fraud investigator in San Diego, and was the first Executive Director of the California Public Interest Research Group (CalPIRG). He has a BA from Syracuse University and an MA from San Diego State University, both in American Studies. Between degrees he spent four years as an Air Force officer. His interests include gardening, woodworking, and current events.
Dan’s interest in OHS stems from his two grandchildren, Madeline (Class of 2027) and Jolie Moore (Class of 2030). Prior to relocating to Eugene last year, Dan and his wife, Donna, rarely missed Grandparents Day, flying out from New York for the event. He’s thrilled to have a shorter trip to OHS events, and to be part of an exceptional institution.
Secretary, Finance & Facilities Committees
Cynthia Morris is the mother of Mark Curtis (class of 2022). Her family came to Oak Hill in 2010 looking for a community with differentiated learning in the classroom and a superior and personalized student/teacher ratio. Cynthia operates a wholesale distribution warehouse, Petersen-Arne, that provides weekly replenishment to retail stores and ecommerce fulfillment in the sewing and crafting categories. Cynthia serves on both the Finance and Facilities committees of the Board of Trustees. She has been a driving force, together with Jesse Elliott, for the six major campus improvement and building projects we’ve experienced every year since 2012, including the Hill Art Studios and barn renovation complex, remodeling of the MacDonald building creating new classrooms, and repurposing of the Cottage and Gonyea House into our new administrative core at the heart of campus. What Cynthia loves most about Oak Hill is that it provides what she wishes every kid could have: a caring community of bright and tolerant-minded professionals, dedicated to supporting every child to be the best they can be, while exploring all facets of academic and creative achievement in a safe, supportive, and inspiring natural setting.
