CEF Adds New Board Member
With great pride, the directors of the Corbett Education Foundation would like to introduce our newest board member, Tami Larsen. Tami began assisting CEF with fundraising efforts two years ago, but officially signed onto the board in August of this year following the graduation of her children, Skyler and Carter, this past Spring.
A familiar face in and around the school since her children transferred to Corbett in the fourth grade, Tami was active with CHAMPS last year, has assisted at school registration the last couple of years, and has often been in attendance at Corbett school and sporting events, particularly during Carter’s basketball seasons and Skyler’s softball participation. Always quick to lend a helping hand, Tami said she “started volunteering as a way of staying involved with my kids while they were in school”. She found volunteering to be a good “way to get to know the people and kids” her twins were spending time with. “I continue to volunteer because of all the amazing kids and adults I get to spend my time with while helping out”, says Tami
When asked what she likes about Corbett, Tami replied, “I love the fact that my kids always felt safe at Corbett. Everyone knows everyone. My kids couldn’t get lost in the crowd because everyone – the teachers, administrators, maintenance personnel, and bus drivers – know all the kids and there is really a feeling that they care about the kids’ wellbeing.” With “family” ranking first on her list of priorities, Tami has dedicated much time and energy to supporting whatever activities her kids have been involved with. Though she enjoys traveling and sharing experiences with her husband, Derek, and her extended family, Tami has enjoyed being a “stay-at-home Mom” for many years.
Tami brings a diverse range of experiences and skills to CEF having previously worked as a substitute teacher, office coordinator, and property claims representative. She is organized, creative, outgoing, and always quick to smile. The CEF board is thrilled to have Tami join our organization and we are looking forward to the many ideas and contributions she offers in helping us grow and support CHS graduates.
Welcome aboard, Tami!
