Holly Yang, Board Director, President, board1@friendsofbroadwayschool.org

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 sometimes being a 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 fifth and second grades. At FOBES she works on lots of things, including the Family Giving Campaign, Spiritwear, and the Spring Auction.
