                                      Vice President: Shelby Rochester

My name is Shelby Rochester, I have two sons attending Alliance Academy for Innovation in the Fall. Ethan is a rising freshman and Evan is a rising Junior. We moved to Forsyth County in 2006 from Alpharetta and love the schools here in Forsyth County. The boys and I spent 5 months in Europe visiting schools, museums and historical sites when my husband was working on a merger in Alaska. From that research trip, I helped leadership start two new private schools and also a public Charter school in Roswell serving 550+ children. I’ve implemented Public Library themed ‘Storytimes’ and served on an Ethics Committee for two years. I’ve held VP and Secretary PTO positions in the past and look forward to helping the teachers, students, administration, staff and parents here at Alliance Academy over the next two years.

My name is Srihari, I have been a resident of  Forsyth County for the past 6 years. I lived in New Jersey before moving to Georgia. I work as a senior project manager in IT services and am excited to get my second master’s degree this summer in supply chain management from GCSU.

I have an amazing wife and 2 boys. My older son recently graduated from Georgia Tech and the younger one is currently a freshman at Alliance. As a family, we enjoy traveling, sports, hiking, reading, and camping.                            I am really excited to join the board as Secretary and looking forward to supporting the AAI PTO.
