Board Vice President – Roary Hutt

Board Secretary – Michelle Carlson

HI! My name is Michelle Carlson, I moved to Warrensburg around 17 years ago. My husband is in the USAF and we have 2 daughters that are 15 and 19. Outside of ECHO, I am a Kindergarten teacher at McQuerry Elementary in Odessa. I joined ECHO about 4/5 years ago, when Roary brought this wonderful opportunity to my attention and I couldn’t say no to helping as many littles as I could. 

Board Treasurer – Andrea Robinson

Andrea Robinson is a Loan Specialist  at Central Missouri Community Credit Union. Warrensburg is her hometown but she now resides in Leeton, Mo. She has been an ECHO board member since 2017. She took the role of treasurer two years ago. She became a board member because she could see what great work ECHO was doing for the youth in Johnson county and couldn’t say no to the opportunity to help the community.
