Laurie Efremidis, President

Hello! I am thrilled and absolutely honored to serve as this year’s PTO President. I am excited for the year ahead and I hope together, we can continue to accelerate our mission to bring parents and teachers together in order to build and strengthen the Saint Bridget Catholic School Community. 

A little about me: My husband, Tim, and I have 2 girls — Penelope (rising 4rd grader) and Zoe (rising First grader). I work at Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center as the Director of Pharmacy. A fun fact about me is that I’d love to open a bakery or a dog rescue someday…maybe both!

“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” – 1 Peter 4:10
