Tanya Starke, President
Tanya Starke has been a member of our school community for the past four years, when her oldest daughter started Pre-School.  Tanya jumped right in and became a class representative and parent volunteer for our School Family Network (SFN).  Through her interaction and involvement in Annual Fund, Auction, and other school activities, Tanya made a seamless transition to the Board in 2016. 

Tanya has seen firsthand how important it is to start your child’s education off on the right foot.  Tanya had visited other schools prior to choosing GHA, but was drawn back to the nurturing, yet well-rounded academic environment that GHA provides.  The teachers and specialists at GHA are incredibly special, as they recognize each student for the individuals that they are.  Tanya is so thankful that her children have an opportunity to get a top-notch academic education with emphasis on qualities such as empathy, courage, critical thinking, and stewardship, which will guide them throughout their lives.
