Vice President
Kristine Erickson
I would like to be a Stokes PTA officer because I value service to the community, and giving back to support the whole community. We are a new family to Stokes this year, but we already feel such a part of the community through our child’s class experience with teachers, aids, and classmates. I hope to continue the good work that the previous PTA officers have developed. My previous and current experience include presiding as President of the John Burroughs Education Campus PTO in DC and sitting on the Board of Project Transformation DC, respectively.

Treasurer – 2 candidates
Wahi Chisolm

As the 2019-2020 Stokes Treasurer, I formed 501c3 to establish our PTA as a recognized nonprofit organization and transitioned bookkeeping online using Quickbooks using integration with Square. I hope to continue making progress by organizing PTA finances and providing transparency into all expenses.

Kristofor Erickson
Kris was nominated for Treasurer with the following statement; Kris Erickson is a concerned parent who wants to contribute to the school community. He is responsible, dependable, and highly organized. His background in financial services would be a benefit to this position
