About Our Board Members
PRESIDENT: Tanya Okenka
My name is Tanya Okenka and I am a wife and mother of two. My oldest will be in second grade and my youngest will be attending Morrish in a couple more years . My husband and I are both life long Swartz Creek residents and I am a former Morrish student myself. I am also a full time working mother trying to balance work and time with my children that tends to go too quickly. I enjoy being part of the Morrish family and to provide all the help I can to create fun and memorable events. I am also looking forward to meeting other parents that wish to contribute their time to help build an inspiring and welcoming atmosphere for students and our visitors.
VICE PRESIDENT: Sarah Mellish
Hello, my name is Sarah Mellish and this is my 4th year teaching kindergarten here at Morrish Elementary! I have 2 daughters who both attended Morrish and are now in the middle school and high school. Aside from teaching, my passion is using my talents to volunteer and serve others. I want to make a difference in the lives of our students, parents, and staff members. I look forward to serving as your PTO Vice President and encourage you to join us whenever you are able. We welcome and encourage parent involvement!
SECRETARY: Cassidy Sheahan
Hi, I’m Cassidy! I’ve worked in Swartz Creek for about two years now, with Morrish being my home base in special education parapro work. I’ve been a dragon almost all my life, starting at Dieck Elementary. I’m currently an elementary education major at Eastern Michigan, and I am so excited to continue helping out the school on the PTO board this year.
TREASURER: Carrie Erbe
My name is Carrie Erbe. I am in my second year as PTO Treasurer. My husband and I reside in Swartz Creek. Our daughter, Riley, is going into third grade this upcoming 2018-2019 school year. I work full time for a fire department and have currently served as our Union’s Secretary for the past several years. For the past few years I have been able to volunteer a few days a week in kindergarten, assisting the teachers. I have also enjoyed helping out with other PTO events. Participating in the PTO is a great continuation of my efforts to support the school not only for my daughter but all the students at Morrish. I look forward to continuing to serve as PTO Treasurer for upcoming school year.
