When my wife Hailey and I chose Long Creek as our top magnet choice for our oldest daughter last year, we knew we had found a diamond in the rough. Now in our 2nd year at Long Creek, we are excited to be getting more involved in continuing to improve this outstanding school community. This will be my first time on a PTO board and I am both humbled and excited. Our oldest daughter will be in 1st grade at Long Creek this year and our youngest will be in Kindergarten in fall of 2022. My wife and I are both attorneys. I have been a criminal defense attorney with the Gaston County Public Defender’s Office for the past 9 years, while my wife is a managing partner and premier Estate Planning attorney at the law office of Stott, Hollowell, Wyndham, and Stancil. In addition to my normal duties at work, I supervise the Recovery Court program in Gaston County as well as the Social Work Internship partnership we have with UNCC. I am also currently the chair of the Community Service subcommittee through the Gaston County Bar Association. When I’m not working, I enjoy volunteering with Mount Holly Parks and Rec as a tee ball and (hopefully in the near future) softball coach. I’ve also been involved in Charlotte as the music director for the Dilworth Players Community Theater productions for the past 3 years. This school community is resilient and strong. We showed that through the Love For Long Creek Campaign this past spring. Let’s not stop there. Let’s not settle. Let’s come together and do something special here!

Hello, my name is Tiffany Lee and my son Avery is a 3rd grader this year.  He started here in kindergarten and we have loved every minute of it.  I decided to get more involved this year and join the PTO Board.  I bring with me many years of experience from other PTO and PTA boards I have had the pleasure of serving on.  I am excited for all the wonderful things planned for Long Creek this school year.

I am married and also have 2 grown daughters.  One is a graduate of St. Andrews University and the other attends Winston-Salem State.  I am very proud of my children and I credit some of their success to the time I have put into volunteering at their schools.

Hi, my name is Andria Jenkins!

My husband, Erik, and I have one student attending Long Creek Elementary School (currently in the 1st grade). Besides being a member of the PTO Board, I am a Data Analyst for Direct Chassis Link, Inc (DCLI), and I also do event decorating for my business on the side. It is important to me to be involved and give back to the community and our daughter's school! It's not my first year being a volunteer, but my first year being a member of the school board. I'm looking forward to helping out and connecting the school and community with the work of the PTO.
