Hello, my name is Akia Harper. Currently, I am serving as the PTO President. Originally, I am from Virginia. I am a graduate of Hampton University…Go Pirates! Due to the military we have moved all over the United States. My husband James & I moved to Blythewood in 2008. We have 4 children (Josh, Jon, Lailah & Kailah) and a dog (Maggie). I have been a member of the Langford family since it opened its doors in 2010. In the past, I have served as the PTO secretary and treasurer. I love reading, cooking, and gardening.
Hello my name is Jill Carpenter. I am currently serving as your Vice President. Last 2 years I served as the PTO Secretary. I have lived in South Carolina my whole life. Originally from Anderson, SC and moved to the NE/Blythewood area in 1991. I am a Spring Valley Graduate and have a Midlands Technical College Business Management degree. My husband and I have 3 little girls, (Erin-3rd grade, Bailey-Pre 4k, and Camille 1 yr old) so I will be at Langford for a very long time.

Kris White has been with PTO for 3 years. She has one daughter in 4th grade, and one in first grade, so she will be around for a long time! She is our Volunteer Coordinator, and loves the job. She’s not afraid to ask for help, so be prepared for the emails. She enjoys painting, and reading, and working in the dirt.
