Meet our PCN Members!

Who is on the PCN and how do I get in touch with them?


PCN Chair and 6-8 Representative-

This is my 8th year at CFCI and I’ve been an active part of the CFCI family since my son was in kindergarten. I am an active volunteer at CFCI as class Parent, a member of the PCN since its inception in 2017, and author of CFCI’s Green Tips.  This year, I am very excited be the PCN’s Chair and Middle School (6-8) Representative. I love seeing how the PCN has found its groove; and helping to answer parent questions, resolve issues, brainstorm new ideas, and be a sounding board for the administration. I’m passionate about the environment and greening our school. I look forward to being a part of CFCI’s 20th year.

Keri Wray

I was born and raised in Arkansas, and moved to Wilmington in 2003 for my husband’s job at UNCW.  Having “babies at the beach” was the main draw to moving to NC.  We have three lovely girls:  Emerson - 8th grade, Harper - 4th grade & Lottie - 1st grade, all cfci students.  I run a preschool by day and try to be involved at cfci on various levels - We love CFCI!

Shelley Thomas

My name is Shelley Thomas and I have three children at CFCI - June and Caroline in fourth grade and Luke in first.  We have loved our time at CFCI, especially the wonderful teachers and the supportive environment they create in the classrooms.  An avid book lover, I enjoy coordinating the school book fair and volunteering in the classrooms as much as possible.  Aside from my role as wife, mom and volunteer, I work part-time for a local non-profit, Good Friends of Wilmington.

Tanya Inabnit

My name is Tanya Inabnit and I am excited to serve on the PCN as the Partnership Representative.  This is my second year at CFCI, with one son in first grade and one who will be in kindergarten in 2020.  I grew up in a small town outside of Charlotte NC, moved to Wilmington in 2002 and never looked back!  I cannot think of a better place to raise my family.  I’m so grateful we found CFCI and I love how dedicated everyone is to the students here.  I also have the privilege to serve as the Chairperson for CFCI’s PTO - The Partnership.  I love getting to know the members of our CFCI community and supporting our school through this position.  Outside of volunteering, I enjoy cooking, gardening, crafting, the beach, spending time with my family and watching football.

Lori Roy

My name is Lori Roy and I have the distinct privilege to be the Director at the Cape Fear Center for Inquiry. I am excited at the growth of this committee in its first two years and looking forward to even more exciting, hard work this year!  . We pride ourselves in communication and collaboration, but it is often difficult to reach all stakeholders and know what all questions and concerns may be. The Parent Collaborative Network is an opportunity for CFCI faculty, staff, parents, board and community members to collaborate and brainstorm/problem-solve and simply keep communication open. Here's to 20 years of inquiry-learning and collaborating at CFCI!
