Meet Our Board


Our Board of Directors is made up of very dedicated community volunteers who recognize the value of consistent, engaging, quality childcare for families in the Edgerton area.

Chris Hogarth, President

Chris has been part of the Eagles Nest Board of Directors since the beginning of our organization in 2015. Chris heads up the Fundraising Committee as well as being part of the Accreditation Committee. Chris is employed by Baker Hughes as an Account Manager. Chris became part of the Eagles Nest because he realized the town of Edgerton needed help taking care of hard working Edgertonian’s children, and believed the program would also bring new faces to our little oasis called Edgerton.

Kaylan White, Vice President

Kaylan is also one of the founding members of the Eagles Nest Child Care Programs, having been on the Board since 2015. Kaylan is part of the Accreditation Committee and has been kept busy updating documentation for our programs. Kaylan is employed by Repsol Oil & Gas Inc as a Senior Operator.

Ashley Chesterman, Treasurer

Ashley became part of the Eagles Nest Board, taking on the responsibilities of Treasurer in May, 2019.

Barb Sjoquist, Secretary

Barb is one of the founding members of the Eagles Nest Out of School Care & PreSchool programs. Barb carries the Secretary responsibilities for our programs and is also involved in the Communications through looking after our website. Barb has also been involved in fundraising through Grant applications. Barb recently retired after 25 years serving as Mayor of our community and continues to be active in community building through other avenues.

Betty Klasen, Director

Betty is a Director with our Eagles Nest Child Care Programs, appointed to the Board of Directors in August, 2016. Betty has recently experienced some personal work related changes from driving a school bus and being a Janitor at the Edgerton School and is now in charge of the Edgerton Post Office.

Larenn Watson, Director

Larenn was appointed to the Board of Directors in October, 2018. Larenn is a teacher at the Edgerton Public School. She wanted to be part of the Eagles Nest Board because she believes Out of School Care and PreSchool programs are assets both to our community and to our school. PreSchool helps prepare our future Kindergarten students for the big changes ahead, setting them up to succeed in that all important first year. Out of School Care, especially in a small community like ours, allows working and busy parents to keep their kids in our school rather than choosing schools in larger centers that may be closer to 'the office'. Larenn wants to see Edgerton's students continue to thrive here and Eagles Nest is an important part of that.

Ashley Johnston, Director 

Ashley joined the Eagles Nest Board in May, 2019.  Ashley is a full time pharmacist at the Wainwright Health Centre and a Mom to 3 busy little boys. She joined the Eagle's Nest Board of Directors in 2019 because she feels it is a wonderful program to have in our community.  Ashley wanted to become more involved as her family will be utilizing these services and she is impressed with what the program has done for our children and the community so far.
