Dr. Light is from Rolla and is a proud graduate of Rolla High School. She has been married to her husband Lawrence for 24 years, and together they have 2 boys; Brody (20) and Cooper (16).

This has been a dream of mine for a very long time. I love our town and our outstanding school district. It is an honor to have been chosen for this position working alongside Mrs. Davis and Dr. Fleming.
