Board Members

Meet our elected 2018-2019 SCPTSA Executive Committee members! 

President CHANDRA HAMPSON 
Chandra Hampson weaves threads of social justice, economic and community development and banking into the tapestry that is her “work”. She’s an accidental Seattleite (UW MBA) but lifelong North-westerner (Pendleton High School) with roots in Nebraska and having left her heart in Italy (Le Grazie) and California (Stanford). She is descendant from the Broadface and Cloud families and Thunderbird clan of the Winnebago Tribe and is raising her third and fifth grade girls (Sand Point) to understand the importance of being brave for their ancestors, both HoChuck and Anishinaabe. Since succumbing to the bizarre allure of PTAmom, Chandra served her school community as PTA President, Vice President, Community Engagement Chair and Garden Co-Chair.
