Sydney Fee | Board Member
Sydney Fee and her family became close to the Edelbrock family as both Fee boys went to LIttle Montessori and were lucky enough to have Joni as their teacher. Each boy was lucky enough to have Kaci in their class at one point. Sydney passionately believes in preserving Kaci's contagious spirit by actively serving on the board. Sydney brings a heartfelt commitment to her role, working to honor Kaci's legacy and make a positive impact in the community. Kaci’s spirit will benefit so many students and children in our community and I cannot wait to help make this happen.
