Koreans of Lexington (KoLex) Liaison

The mission statement for The Korean Organization of Lexington, KoLex: created as a resource for Korean residents and for the Town of Lexington.  As a group we will work to support each other and work together with local officials and town members to help create a town that can further benefit from its local Korean residents.

The purpose of this liaison role is to act as Hastings’ representative for KoLex. In 2015, we started 3 new liaison roles with the following organizations: Chinese American Association of Lexington (CAAL), Indian Americans of Lex (IAL) and Koreans of Lexington (KoLex). While each cultural organization has its own mission, the Hastings’ Liaison will work with the particular cultural group to promote more parental involvement in enriching Hastings’ students lives, to foster cultural diversity, and to bring new perspectives to local education and cultural issues in a welcoming and integrated Lexington.

Specifically, the Hastings KoLex liaison will be the bridge between KoLex and Hastings PTO either through attending the educational focus meetings or through regular contacts with KoLex committee members. The liaison will keep the Hastings community informed of important educational issues raised by KoLex. The liaison will also promote Hastings PTO events with the help of the KoLex organization.
