Holly Yang, President
Holly is originally from North Carolina and moved to LA in 2006 after some strong persuasion from one husband-to-be. She uses probably nothing from her majors in Chemistry and East African Studies, but has never been happier as a stay at home mom. She has a hard time saying no, so you may have seen her running around campus teaching Art in Action, attending Friends of Broadway, School Site Council or Beautification meetings, helping run the Spring auction or a couple of Girl Scout troops, or being a Kinder room parent. Her other love is performing, both dancing and singing; performing has been a huge part of her life. Julius and Holly have two daughters in the MI program: Journey and Avalon are in fourth and first grades.
Renee Schurtz, Vice President
Renee was born in Los Angeles and lived in five different states before returning to LA in 2014. She graduated from the University of Iowa and Portland State University. She has worked as a digital marketer, a content editor and producer in the travel and beauty industries, and a social worker. Renee has volunteered in various capacities at Broadway since her son’s kinder year in 2015, including room parent, beautification, Art in Action, recruitment, Dia de los Muertos, grant writing, and Friends of Broadway.
Yvette Fenton, Recording Secretary
Yvette was born and raised in Los Angeles, and has been a Venice resident for over a decade. She received her Bachelor’s in Child and Adolescent Development from Cal State Fullerton, and her Masters in Language and Literacy from Loyola Marymount University, along with her multiple-subject teaching credential. Yvette has always known her dream job was to teach and has taught in preschool and elementary school settings since 2007. Yvette is married with two sweet girls. Elyse is in the 2nd grade SI program. Emery will be joining the kindergarten SI program in 2019-2020. Knowing the importance of school community and support, Yvette has taken some time off from teaching to help Elyse transition into elementary school and to help her further develop her love of learning at Broadway.
