Message from our new JBE One President

Hello James B. Edwards Family!


My name is Katie Edwards and I am honored to serve as your new JBE ONE President alongside a rockstar Executive Board. As an alumni of JBE, I am very passionate about our little school, the staff, the students and look forward to all the fun we’re going to have together this year!

But let me back up – did you hear that PTO and the Tom Lee Endowment officially merged into JBE ONE?! If not, check out this quick video. We’re stronger and streamlined, working as one: JBE ONE.

But as everyone knows, teamwork really does make the dream work and we have an INCREDIBLE TEAM as your Executive Board this year:

Vice President – Anna Upbin

Secretary - Ryan Lemire

Treasurers - Beth Howard and Katie Catalana

Strategic Initiatives - Jodi Fuqua

Faculty Relations - Amelia Smith and Shannon Rice

Community Building - McRae Hogan and Rebecca Sailor


Throughout the year we will be highlighting each of these areas so stay tuned there!

Again, I am honored to serve and look forward to the year!

If you have thoughts, questions, or ideas, don’t hesitate to reach out (

Coming soon, details of our BIG plans for 2022-2023!
