Creve Coeur, MO 63141

Dee Mogerman joined the Parkway Board of Education in June, 2004, and served as board president for two terms. She and her husband, Cary, have three children who are all Parkway graduates. Dee earned a B.A. in Economics/Computer Information Systems from Drake University and is the office administrator for Zerman Mogerman, LLC.

A volunteer in Parkway since 1992, Dee has held many leadership roles at both the individual school and district-wide level. She worked on the steering committees for the successful Proposition R and Proposition S campaigns and believes Parkway students benefit greatly from those efforts. She serves on the Project Parkway steering committee and on the Board of Directors for Cooperating School Districts.

Dee is committed to the work of Project Parkway and to its implementation. "I believe that every child deserves challenging curriculum, a safe, nurturing school environment and a commitment to academic achievement. The board will have many challenging decisions to make in the near future. My knowledge and experience in the District help me to make informed, fiscally responsible decisions to advance the mission of the Parkway Schools for all children."

717 Juniper Glen Court
Ballwin, MO 63021

I am the parent of a Parkway student (third grader) and a Parkway graduate (South High 2009) and have lived in the district since 1999. My wife has been a Parkway teacher for twelve years. Education has been a family priority since my earliest memories because my father, uncle and grandfather were college professors and my aunt was a high school teacher. A 1981 graduate of a public high school (Golden Senior High School in Golden, Colorado), I subsequently earned a BA (History) from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee and a JD from Washington University School of Law here in Saint Louis.

Professionally, I have 16 years experience as an attorney in private practice here in the Saint Louis area. I retired from the Navy Reserves in 2007 with the rank of Commander after 21 rewarding years of active and reserve service including command and staff experience leading and managing enterprises with up to 1,000 personnel and annual operating budgets up to $20 million. Currently I am honored to serve as President of the Parkway Board of Education and Vice-Chairperson of the Special School District Governing Council.

Charles (Chris) Jacob

Ballwin, MO 63011

Mr. Charles Jacob was born in Long Beach, California. He is a resident of Ballwin where he has resided since 1989. Mr. Jacob received a BBA degree from the University of Houston with a major in Finance and Business Administration. He is the product of public education and his children and grandchildren have been participants of a Parkway education.

He has been employed and worked in St. Louis for Emerson Electric, McDonnell-Douglas and Comsys Technical Services. Mr. Jacob's expertise was manufacturing systems and Information Technology consulting. Since 1997 Mr. Jacob has worked to help his wife's company, NextGen Information Services, move forward to become a national supplier of IT staffing personnel. He is presently semi-retired which allows him to devote time to the community and in particular the school board.

Mr. Jacob was elected to the Parkway School Board in April, 2008. As a board member he has come to know and appreciate what it takes to provide a school environment where all children can come to learn and be prepared for life. This volunteer commitment has been a work of profound satisfaction and a collaborative effort with the superintendent, administrators, faculty and staff to meet today's challenges of our stewardship for the educational needs of our children.

2265 Westglen Park Drive
Maryland Heights, MO 63043

I have been a St. Louis area resident since 1999. As a newer member of the Maryland Heights community, I will bring fresh a perspective to the Parkway district.

I have an MBA from Olin Business School at Washington University. I am married to Jason, an instructor for drafting and design, and we have 4 incredible children. Laynee graduated in 2010 and is attending college. Dallas attends Parkway North and is on the varsity swim team. Sam lives with his biological mother in mid-Missouri. Therin attends Parkway Northeast Middle. Although I am actively involved in my childrens' day-to-day education, I want to be able to contribute more to the community we live in.

Volunteering is a social responsibility that my family and I take very seriously. When flooding hit St. Charles in 2008, my children and I sandbagged to protect our neighborhood. I spent 2-1/2 years as a member of the St. Charles CERT team and am now involved with a local sports team as their Internet Publicity Committee Head.

I would be honored for the opportunity to lead by example in our community. Teaching children to become successful adults is not only a communal responsibility, but an individual duty.
