PTO President: Sheila Maupin
I am a stay home mom with a third grader at HES and a freshman in High School. I was born and raised in Mexico and moved to the states after graduating college. I lived in California for 17 years before making the move to South Carolina 3 years ago. We have fallen in love with the south and its slower pace. This will be my 10th year being involved in a parent teacher organization. I am very passionate about providing extracurricular opportunities for my boys and all students. Although this is my last year as president at Harrisburg, I definitely see myself being involved and volunteering in the future. I would love to continue to guide the new generation of parents so that our kids continue benefitting from organizations like this one. My time at Harrisburg has been very rewarding. Full of challenges and successful outcomes. I can’t wait to see what this year bring for our sweet kids

PTO Vice President: Ryan Coots
I am a stay-at-home mom of two boys, ages 7 & 4. This is our second year at HES and we love it! My family relocated to Indian Land from the Cincinnati area five years ago. I have a technical degree in Optometric Assisting and Ophthalmic Dispensing and I am one year away from obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in Health Science (WooHoo!) from Northern Kentucky University. In our spare time, we love trips to the beach or the mountains, being outdoors and having family time. I absolutely enjoy watching my children grow and learn and spending my day with them.
I am so excited to be participating in PTO and having the opportunity to help with the successes of the school and especially the students. I look forward to meeting as many new faces as possible!

Our family of 4 moved to Indian Land in October 2019 from the Philadelphia area. We took a leap of faith after I received a job offer and have been so happy with our decision. My husband and I both work in banking so natural the Charlotte area was a chance for more career opportunities. Freddie (6) has settled into our neighborhood and loves playing sports for Lancaster County Parks & Rec. We've all loved having him at Harrisburg and have watched him flourish this past year with Mrs. Harris & Ms. White. Olivia (3) is our little energizer bunny who loves gymnastics and any playground she can find.

We came from a small town in rural Arkansas where I worked as an elementary school teacher for four years. I am passionate about education. I enjoy volunteering with the PTO because it gives me the opportunity to actively participate in the success of my children’s school, even if it is small. After all, American author Robert Collier once said, “Success is the sum of small efforts.”
