Under Tom Tunney’s leadership, Lakeview has come to have some of the best schools in the City of Chicago. Tom believes in taking a hands-on approach to education. That is why he works hand in hand with principals, parents, and teachers to find the resources our schools need. In the past few years, Tom built new turf fields at our elementary schools, secured funding for a new addition to Blaine Elementary, and found the resources to build new science labs at Nettlehorst Elementary.

Tom understands the importance of improving our local high schools so that families can choose to give their children a quality public high school education. That is why Tom has been working with administrators at Lakeview High School to implement a new STEM program that will allow our children to compete for 21st Century Jobs.
