Mervat Abdel Massih
My name is Mervat Abdel Massih, with a BSc in Chemical Engineering, and I work as a Realtor while pursuing my Master of Engineering Management online. I’m an active member of my community, serving as a Sunday school teacher and supporting the Good Shepherd Charity for the homeless by cooking and delivering hot meals with my family to give back to our community. My four kids attended CTK for 12 years; my two older daughters have already graduated for high school, and I only have my twin boys in grade 7.
For myself and my kids, CTK has always meant our second home and our big family. I have committed my time to volunteer for various CTK activities, such as pizza, teachers’ lunch, BBQ, and the Fun Fair, during the school years to contribute to my children’s education and school life. I have been on the Catholic School Council for many blessed years and held the Vice-Chair role for two years. I am still interested in serving more, as it is a golden opportunity to meet other parents and teachers, build rapport, and discuss and share ideas. Also, by getting involved in the school council, I can make a significant contribution, provide new insights, share my skills, and become a role model to demonstrate to my kids the importance you place on education as well as being involved in their world. I have been blessed to work with many of the previous school council members, who truly assisted teachers and administrators in creating a caring and supportive atmosphere to improve our children’s achievement and performance.
