Board of Regents

Meet the Chairman


Charles Pierson considers The Oakridge School his family. In addition to his appointment as Board Chairman in August 2021, he has selflessly served in a number of capacities advancing Oakridge, internally and externally, for many years. 

The longtime Regent helped to bring to reality the school’s new baseball field at the Oakridge Athletic Complex. He has also served as Annual Fund Chair (2014-2015) with his wife, Pam. The couple are the proud parents of Janae ’19 and Carl ‘22. When he is not busy lending his time to Oakridge or The Sumners Foundation, where he serves as Executive Director, Charles enjoys volunteering with his church and other nonprofit organizations.

Oakridge Founders and Early Leaders

Early founders of The Oakridge School talk about how the story all began in 1979.

Nancy O'Shea, a lifetime member of the Board of Regents, discusses the early days of Oakridge and our school mission.

Dr. Richard Enos, a retired Oakridge Regent, Alumni Parent, and TCU Professor, reflects on our school's mission, which seeks to bring out the best version of each and every student.

It takes commitment to achieve almost anything, including opening a new school. Founding Parent Susy Sportsman discusses the dedicated individuals who gave their all to Oakridge.

Retired Head of School and President Andy Broadus is known for his favorite word, empathy. Listen to why he says that one word will never let you down.
