TIM MACK: President

Tim is a concerned citizen and father whose children matriculated through the Virginia Beach Public Schools. As a father, he knows the importance of quality education for each and every child in our community and putting students and families first. As an attorney, he also realizes the ominous changes taking place in education that is not only putting the interests of students secondary and diminishing quality but are also leading to the indoctrination of students rather than the development of healthy, happy, strong, independent, well-educated citizens our community and country need. He hopes to help build a grassroots movement to educate families, develop effective educational policies, and help those without a voice have a voice in restoring a quality, non-political education that truly puts students first.

BECKY HAY:  Operations Director

Becky works in benefits administration and is a mom of four children, three of whom have graduated from VBCPS schools. Becky has served in various volunteer capacities throughout her children's educational journeys, including as a board member of a charter school in Minnesota. A job opportunity for her husband brought their family to Virginia almost 10 years ago. As the daughter of a teacher who taught for more than 30 years, Becky values the partnerships between teachers, administration and parents, but fully believes that parents are the primary advocate in all things related to their children - including education.  Educational excellence as well as personal responsibility and accountability by all stakeholders in education are her top concerns, and she believes these are key in transforming our schools and communities.
