PRESIDENT- JON LOCKE
I am the husband of Sara Locke, TCRG. We were both born and raised in Tampa, FL.
I am a critical care Registered Nurse by trade with a passion for business and finance. I hold a Bachelors in Nursing (BSN) and am currently working on my Masters in Business (MBA).
Throughout my career I have served on a number of committees (in multiple capacities), organized fundraisers, managed entire divisions of a company (including its financial upkeep), and have worked with billion dollar organizations from a consultancy perspective, helping to optimize internal clinical processes.
VICE PRESIDENT- SCOT LARRIMORE
I have non profit board experience with the College Hill Children’s Center (4 years) and The Friends of the Wilmington (DE) Library (3 years). I’ve also served on committees at Hospice and Community Care, Delaware Special Olympics and The ARC of Delaware.
I am a graduate of the University of Delaware with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English/ Journalism. I have over 20 years work experience in healthcare sales and marketing and currently work at Penn Medicine/Lancaster General Health as a Physician Liaison. I’ve been with Penn/LGH for almost 14 years.
My daughter Maeve has been at Hooley for two years and is currently competing in Novice. Since my daughter won’t let me dance, I’ve decided serving as a board member would be a great way to assist the school as a whole as it continues to grow and attract new dancers and parents.
ASSISTANT VICE PRESIDENT- TARA HORVATH
I am a wife, mother of four and recently became a grandmother. My husband and I own and operate a family business, Horvath's Chimney and Masonry Repair.
My daughter, Kyla, is a 8-year-old dancer currently attending the champ classes in preparation of Oireachtas. As a business owner, I realize the importance of record keeping and documentation.
I feel that my role as a business owner could assist the Hooley board. I envision the Hooley Booster Club working together to make the Hooley School of Irish Dance an enjoyable place for kids to come and learn to dance and help them reach their goals of attending the Major competitions that the Irish dance world offers.
TREASURER- THERESA STAUFFER
I’m a wife and mother of two from Lititz. I’m also a Police Officer here in Lancaster County. My daughter is 10 years-old and is a dancer in the Prizewinner class.
Several years ago, I started a Christmas program for my agency called “Blue Christmas”. This program provides gifts and necessities for area children in need. I was able to coordinate fundraising events and sponsorships of over 600 items providing for over 60 area children. This program has grown from helping one family to over 20 families. I also document and manage all incoming and outgoing donations for this program. I’m currently on several boards in the county and one for the state that are all work related.
As for the future of Hooley, I can only see things getting bigger and better. Which is hard to picture considering what growth the school has had in just a few short years. I felt it was my responsibility to give back to a school that has provided a lot of growth opportunities for my daughter.
SECRETARY- CATHERINE WAYMAN
I am an adult dancer who has been with the Hooley school since 2016. I was a competitive Irish Dancer in my youth for several years and have never stopped loving the camaraderie, creativity and rewarding lessons this sport brings to men and women. When not dancing, I am working as a Director of Learning and Quality for mental and behavioral health agencies serving children and adults throughout the state of Pennsylvania or, teaching as an adjunct faculty for Cairn University in their Applied Behavior Analysis program.
I have worked with several non-profit agencies over the years and by nature of my current jobs, have gained valuable experience in strategic planning to accomplish doing more with less. Thorough documentation as Secretary facilitates effective and efficient communication which enables everyone to function as a team focused on the same goals.
Joining the Booster Club Board is in an exciting opportunity to work alongside others in advocating the benefits of Irish Dance across the many communities in the Central Pennsylvania region. I would love for Hooley to continue to be a name synonymous with fearless, compassionate and capable men and women across the Irish Dance community and, in 2019, across many other communities around us.
