Keanna Lamont began her involvement with the Massachusetts Youth Leadership Foundation when she represented North Reading High School at the 2012 MassSTAR Citizenship Conference. Since being a delegate in 2012, Keanna has not missed a single conference. She has volunteered in a variety of roles, including a Junior Facilitator, a member of Junior Operations, a member of the Recruitment team on the Conference Planning Committee for 3 years, and as Conference Director for the 2019 and 2022 Conferences. Most recently, in 2023, Keanna became one of the Vice Presidents for the Board of Directors alongside Olivia Lavidor.
Keanna graduated from Boston College with her Bachelors in 2018 studying Elementary Education and Applied Psychology and Human Development. In 2020 she received her Masters in Education in Curriculum and Instruction, also from Boston College. Keanna has worked in a variety of schools throughout the state, and she currently teaches 5th grade in Danvers, Massachusetts.
Keanna has continued to be involved with the MYL Foundation due to the many formative experiences and great friends she has met through the conference. Each year at the conference she loves getting to see the next generation of leaders participate in workshops and have meaningful conversations with one another. She hopes to continue to volunteer with MassSTAR in order to meet and grow with an outstanding group of leaders and change makers
