Lee Roland

Lee Roland has served in public education for more than thirty years, twenty-five of them as an administrator. Particularly gratifying to him are the twelve years he served as the principal of Tulakes Elementary, a high-poverty, high-diversity, and once-failing school that was completely turned around under his leadership. He now shares his experience with schools, churches, and businesses as a consultant and motivational speaker. He also serves as a pastor at The Parish Church in Oklahoma City; a board member for a number of organizations that seek the welfare of children; and an adjunct professor at Southern Nazarene University, where he strives to help future school administrators prepare to truly leave no child behind.
