Sharon Willey, President

Sharon has two daughters at SVHS, a sophomore and a junior. She has lived in Scotts Valley for 13 years with her husband, Stephen Morairty. They live in Skypark so take Halloween very seriously and love being part of this wonderful community. Sharon also has a stepdaughter who lives in Boston.


Sharon is excited to serve as SVHS Parent Club president this year after serving as secretary last year. She feels fortunate to work with such a dedicated board and new members who are committed to enhancing the experience of SVHS students, teachers, staff and families.
