    Tigran Gonzales - Co-Vice President

    My name is Tigran Gonzales and this will be my first year on the PTO board as Co-Vice President.  I am extremely excited for the opportunity to work alongside all the amazing parents, families and faculty of Highlands Elementary. I will be receiving my degree in Interior Design, specializing in Commercial Hospitality this upcoming December 2023. Our family has had the privilege of calling Erie Highlands our home since 2016, when there was nothing, but 2 streets and you knew everyone at the mailbox!  

    We have a 5-year-old daughter, named Gabriella who will be attending Kindergarten this year and can’t hold back her excitement! It has truly been a wonderful experience watching our neighborhood grow with the addition of Highlands Elementary and all the wonderful families from the surrounding communities. I can’t wait to meet our Highlands Elementary families and staff. We are going to have a fabulous year all around! 

    Please don’t hesitate to say hi and thank you so much for this opportunity!
