Dina Sweeny-Lathrop has a long history in Technology, Program/Project Management and Administration. She moved to Battle Ground in 2002 from Portland so that her son could reap the many rewards this community has to offer. Her own investment in Battle Ground began with Sodexo as Administrative Assistant/Technology support, after which she was thrilled to be hired as the Head Secretary at Tukes Valley Middle School. Now she is once again blessed to be the Admin Assistant/District Technology Purchasing Agent for Battle Ground Public Schools’ Technology Services department. An enthusiastic volunteer throughout her many years in the community, she has had the distinct pleasure of serving the BGeF board as Secretary, as well as serving as Cub and Boy Scouts Secretary, on the Captain Strong PTA in various officer positions, and as a certified FCRC youth-mentor. Dina is the proud mother of a River Homelink 2020 graduate and Chamber of Commerce Youth of the Year recipient. Working with the food kitchen, food pantry, serving elderly meals at the community center, and fundraising for various local organizations, Dina is a firm believer in paying it forward and the belief that it takes a village for our kiddos to thrive.
