OHB Board Elects Two New Members 

At OHB’s Board of Directors Meeting on February 20, two new members were elected, Dr. Lisa Sterba and Dustin R. Johnson. Both will serve as Directors on the 11-person board leading OHB. 

Lisa Sterba, Ed.D. 

Lisa’s personal philosophy is that gratitude is a superpower in every situation.

She earned her Doctorate in Educational Administration from the University of Nebraska Omaha and was recently a member of the Inaugural Knowability AccessEDU Leadership Panel.

Lisa dedicates much of her time to giving back to the community through volunteering. She has collected items for food drives, coached and sponsored a church youth group, and volunteered with the Special Olympics. Lisa is a member of the Gilbert C. Swanson Foundation and the St. Robert’s Ladies Guild.

Lisa and her husband Jeff have two grown children.
