Dr. Justin Hackett is seeking his first term as School Director. When Justin and his family moved to the area in 2013, they were drawn to Mt. Lebanon because of the exceptional schools. He has since committed himself to the community as a youth sports coach, board member for the Mt. Lebanon Soccer Association and a private instructor for percussion instruments. Justin also plays regularly in venues around the city with several bands.
Dr. Hackett is an Associate Professor at California University of Pennsylvania. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Political Science from Northern Kentucky University, a Masters in Applied Social Psychology and Program Evaluation, and a Ph.D. in Applied Social Psychology, both from Claremont Graduate University. His research interests lie in program evaluation, and promoting civic action and sustained community engagement.
Justin and his wife, Mandy, have three boys who currently attend Howe Elementary School.
