Over the past three decades, Elaine Padgett has served her community as:

School Leader

In the schools, Elaine has been a volunteer or leader in:

  • VEX Robotics – Helped start the VEX Robotics program at Lakeside Middle School in 2011.  At this time, the school did not have a teacher sponsor, robot or any funds for the team.   The team was able to raise over $5000 through a community fund-raising campaign and to recruit a teacher sponsor (Mr. Smart).   This money allowed for the formation of multiple robotics teams in the first year and created a fund that helped fund future teams.  The LMS program became very popular and successful, winning a VEX World Championship in 2016.
  • FLL Robotics – Helped start and co-coached a championship FLL Robotics team at Haw Creek Elementary.
  • Science Olympiad – Parent Volunteer at Haw Creek Elementary and Lakeside Middle School.
