Laura Troutman, Trustee
While Laura Troutman comes from a long line of educators, she is the first to serve on a board of school trustees. She has been a member of the Banning Unified board since 2019. Troutman’s maternal grandfather worked as a school principal, while her maternal grandmother taught Head Start. Her husband is a dual enrollment teacher at the high school with a master’s degree in government, and his parents volunteered for years in Banning schools.
Troutman is currently furthering her education by taking prerequisite courses at Mt. San Jacinto College in Menifee to become a registered nurse. Throughout her life, she has always felt a desire to help people. She is fulfilling this lifelong mission through her service to the District and board.
