Who’s Who 2024 General Election

Vice President of Membership Benefits

Faith Johnson

I am currently serving as the VP of Member Benefits and have been on the last two negotiation teams.  As an active association leader, I have been advocating for members of OEA/NSEA/NEA for the last 11 years.  I bring a diverse and unique perspective to the board.

Craig Wiles

1 Senior High Board Rep

Cathie Armbeck-Hughes

As a longtime union member, I do not pursue platforms for selfish gain.  My union involvement is not how I can benefit, but rather how we can all collectively make education better for all.  I am a fierce advocate for both students and my fellow colleagues.

Michelle Settlemyer

1 Middle Level Board Rep

Stacie Stevens

I’ve been a special education teacher with OPS for 23 years. For the last 15 years, I’ve been actively advocating for student and teacher rights through various leadership roles within OEA and the Metro District. With your support, I’m committed to continuing this advocacy work. Thank you for your support!
