Board of Directors
Director of Facilities, University of Idaho
Why I chose to be a board member?"My interest in serving on the board is two-fold. I want to be actively involved with my kids and their educational experiences and serve in a capacity that advances and elevates our school's impact within the Moscow community and beyond. I believe my current and past professional work experiences will benefit the Board of Directors in several ways. I have worked directly with the development, implementation, and management of programs and facilities within educational settings. Additionally, I have experience in student and staff development; leadership and organizational development; event programming; budget preparation and oversite, brand management, and sponsorship."
At-Home Parent and Owner, Virginia Ave
Why I chose to be a board member?"Serving on the Board is a little out of the norm for me, but I very much wanted to contribute to the wonderful Moscow Charter School community our son enjoys so much. His time here has been a great blessing to our family and I wanted to do what I can to be of use to the school. As a stay-at-home parent, I feel I will bring relevant perspective and helpful experience to the Board."
Application Engineer, Schweitzer Engineering
After graduating from the University of Idaho with an electrical engineering degree in 2017, Brandon started working full time for Schweitzer Engineering in Pullman, WA. On his days off he enjoys fly fishing, camping, and spending time outdoors with his family and friends. His wife and he have lived in Moscow for over 10 years and are happy to call it home. Brandon and his wife love the community, staff and STEAM education at MCS. Their son attends second grade there now and they look forward to their youngest child starting kindergarten there soon.
Why I chose to be a board member?
“Moscow has provided many opportunities to help me be successful in my education and life journey. Being a part of the Moscow Charter School Board gives me the chance to give back to my community and help make a positive impact on our students. My oldest son currently attends Moscow Charter School and his future, along with the many students at the school, is of the utmost importance to me. I want to become a part of the board that helps create future opportunities, provide solid structure, and meaningful education for our children.”
Senior Engineering Manager, Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories
Evan was born and raised in Lewiston, Idaho but has lived in Moscow since 2003 when he began studying Engineering at the University of Idaho where he earned his Bachelor of Science and Master of Engineering both in Electrical Engineering with emphasis in Power Protection. Upon graduation in 2007 he began his career in Research and Development at Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories. In his free time, Evan enjoys almost any activity that allows him to spend time outdoors. Both of Evan’s children attend Moscow Charter School. Evan joined the Moscow Charter School Board in 2023.
Why I chose to be a board member?
“Moscow Charter School has done so much for my kids that I was looking for a way to give back. Working in Pullman did not give me many opportunities to volunteer in the classroom but volunteering my time in the evening as a board member easily fit my schedule. Furthermore, I believe my background in engineering will bring further breadth of expertise to the board ensuring that Moscow Charter School can continue to specialize in STEAM education.”
