Meet the Executive Committee

Tammy Fenwick, PTACHC Representative

Tammy will be voted on at the September meeting

Hi Everyone!!  I’m Tammy and I will be serving as one of the PTACHC (PTA Council of Howard County) Representatives.  This is my second year at Bollman Bridge with an incoming first grader, and I also have a preschooler.  I currently work from home part-time doing administrative work.  I have a background in Social Work as well as Human Resources and Security.  I grew up in Howard County and I’m excited to learn as much as I can about how our school system works from a parent’s perspective, and passing this on to our local Bollman Bridge families.




Lexi Sassi, Secretary

My name is Lexi Sassi and I have a 1st and 3rd grader here at BBES.  I have enjoyed volunteering at the school in the past as both a Beaver Cart mom, in the classroom, and at various events.  I look forward to taking on a more active role as a PTA secretary by recording and distributing detailed meeting notes so that families who can’t attend meetings (as I often could not) can still feel involved with the PTA.  Before having children, I worked in law enforcement for thirteen years.  More recently, I’ve obtained my real estate license and look forward to starting my second career.







Lakesha Ott, Treasurer

I am Lakesha and I will be serving as the PTA Treasurer. This will be my fifth year at Bollman Bridge. My oldest daughter was recently promoted to 6th grade and is off to middle school. I also have an incoming Kindergartner and a very active 2-year-old.

Before deciding to start a family daycare in my home I worked as a Compliance Manager for a financial company. I decided to leave the corporate world in 2013 to stay home with my girls. My desire is to be more involved with the school so I thought why not join the Executive Board of the PTA! I am very excited to work with everyone!






Betsy Kuhns, PTACHC Representative

Betsy will be voted on at the September meeting.

Hi everyone! My name is Betsy Kuhns, and I’m going to be a PTACH rep this year. I have one daughter in 1st grade at Bollman, and two little ones who will be coming in the next few years. I have worked in Human Resources but currently work part time at McAdoodle Children’s Consignment in Fulton. I also love to make fun cakes in my spare time!






Rhonda Thurston Secretary

Hi, I am Rhonda Thurston and I will serve the Bollman PTA as a Secretary.  I just moved to this area in March.  My son will be in the 4th grade this fall.  I look forward to working with you all soon.










Nina Guth, Vice President

Hi! I am Nina Guth! I will be serving the Bollman PTA as Vice President.

This will be my third year at Bollman Elementary. I have an incoming first grader, second grader and my oldest is heading to 7th grade!

Merritt Pimental, President

Hello! I am Merritt Pimental and I will be serving as PTA president this coming school year. I have a 5th and 4th grader and we have been at BBES since my oldest was in Kindergarten. For 20 years I owned a dance company specializing in preschool and elementary school aged students. Recently I took a position with the BBES RECC Dept as a teacher’s aide.

I am so excited to work with everyone and I look forward to meeting you all!
