Liz holds her Ph.D. in Special Education from University of Florida, her M. ED from College of William, and her Bachelor’s in Elementary and Middle Childhood education from George Mason University. She has seen the need to provide an alternative to public education as it has changed so much since she began in her field. Liz has been involved with GCCS for several years, prior to joining the Board. The Lord has been faithful to meet the school’s needs and she sees GCCS providing a special ministry to families.
Board Vice President
Since joining the GCCS board, when Dan’s children attended a few decades ago, he has seen the Lord provide for the school in many ways, but particularly through the investment of people; volunteers building, leading, serving meals, donating; teachers investing themselves in their students; and parents participating in the life of the school in many ways. Dan sees the school as a primary extension of the families, a cooperative of parents and grandparents providing for the education and spiritual development of each other’s children out of love for God and his Church. He is glad he can support this ministry as the Board Vice President.
