Role: Co-Chair of Spring Auction Fundraiser “Glitter Ball”
Why Percy Priest: Percy Priest is such an incredible school that has provided such a sense of community for us over the last two years despite the difficult challenges the pandemic has created. It is an incredible feeling as a parent when you watch teachers and staff members give so deeply of themselves. What a privilege for our children to leave school each day feeling loved and supported, all while furthering their academic and personal growth. I have loved helping fundraise for PPE because I want to help provide our teachers with the resources they need to be successful and make their jobs easier!
