Lakisha Wingard

Director of Admissions


Lakisha joined Hershey Montessori School in August 2016.  She graduated from Xavier University with a major in Communications and minor in Gender and Diversity Studies. Most recently, she completed her AMI 6-12 Montessori Orientation (also known as the AMI Montessori 6–12 Assistants Certificate) in May 2021 and the AMI 3-6 Montessori Orientation course in January 2022. Prior to joining Hershey, Lakisha was the regional director for a national nonprofit focused on dropout prevention. Additionally, Lakisha is a former college admissions professional and has worked in admissions at Macalester College, The University of Alabama in Huntsville, and Auburn University at Montgomery. The common thread to her professional career has been relationship building and service to students and adults from all life experiences.
