Evelyn Hou has been a member of the New Roads School Board of Trustees since 2020.
Why I Serve
New Roads is a very special and unique place. The school provides a safe place for its students to learn, take risks, fail, question, challenge, communicate, problem solve and grow. Students are given the space to find out who they are and who they might aspire to be. They are stretched to view the world through multiple lenses and to also understand their responsibility in challenging and changing injustice. Academics play a critical and central role in shaping the mind, but success is personal and unique to each individual. The special design of a New Roads education is created through thoughtful intention and continual reflection that drives the decisions and direction of teaching, its leadership, and the community. Since its inception, the school has always had a deeply rooted commitment to diversity and inclusion, core values that continue to weave through the student body and families at the school today. I am honored to be a part of the New Roads Village and I serve to protect the mission of New Roads School.
