Ryan Armstrong is a North Carolina native. He was born in Raleigh and grew up in High Point. He attended Appalachian State University (ASU) where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Technology with a minor in Physics. Ryan met his wife Holly at ASU and they married in 2001.

Ryan and Holly live in Holly Springs and have three children at GRACE - Cole, Taylor, and Emma Kate. The Armstrongs have been a part of the GRACE community for ten years. Cole and Taylor are both very involved in athletics, so you will often find the Armstrongs at either the soccer field or the basketball court.

Ryan and his family attend Hope Community Church where he serves on the Roadie Crew in the parking lot and enjoys being one of the first people to greet someone and welcome them to church.

In 2004, the same year Cole was born, Ryan and Holly started GoPlaySave. They have been blessed to be able to work together for 16 years and have seen God’s hand in growing their business. Ryan is honored to be a part of the GRACE Board of Trustees and is excited to see how God will continue to grow and bless our great school.

Renee Drumgo is a native of Dinwiddie, Va., but grew up spending time in Raleigh where her father was born and raised. She attended North Carolina A&T State University (NCAT) in Greensboro, N.C. where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in architectural engineering and a master’s degree in architectural engineering with a focus on mechanical systems and energy. Renee also has a MBA from Christian Brothers University (CBU) in Memphis, Tenn.
 
Renee currently works as an energy engineer. Although her customers cover many vertical markets, Renee’s passion is with smaller, rural K-12 customers with limited budgets and resources. Renee works to identify ways for her customers to save energy, which allows them to reallocate money from their utility budget to address many of their capital improvement needs such as improved mechanical systems, controls, healthy buildings initiatives, etc. Renee believes all students deserve the right to attend school in a safe and healthy environment that is conducive to learning and operating at their highest potential.
 
Along with her full time job, Renee is the owner of Royal Hues Designs. Her company is dedicated to creating products with images that positively depicts and encourages African American children. The company’s tagline is about creating “Products that Inspire Through Positive Representation”. 
 
Renee and her husband, Tari, live in Apex where they are raising their five children - Sienna (who currently attends GRACE), Gavin, Evan, Bryson and Skye. Their family attends Hatcher Grove Baptist Church where Tari is a minister and Renee serves on the Food Ministry. The Drumgo family has been a part of the GRACE community for eight years. Renee has volunteered in many roles throughout the years. These have included her previous roles as PTF Vice President and PTF President.

My name is Andrei Malacinski and I am grateful to be a GRACE board trustee. I am excited about what the Lord continues to do in the hearts and lives of students both academically and spiritually at GRACE. Christian education is a privilege I do not take for granted and am thankful for the fruit of our wonderful school.

I have a wonderful wife and three active boys, each attending GRACE. Most days after school, you can find us on a ball field, shooting hoops, or enjoying family time. I enjoy volunteering at our church and attending Bible Study Fellowship. I have a heart for missions, and a strong love of our Lord Jesus Christ.

I am a graduate of Indiana University, and am currently employed by IBM.  At IBM, I manage a world-wide software development team, but have held management positions in engineering, customer support and operations. It is my prayer that I will be able to contribute to the Board as we strive to be faithful to our Mission Statement and to bring glory to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
