Parent Guild President


Terry Larimer hails from Omaha, NE and is no stranger to volunteering for the arts. Before moving to the Seattle area, he spent much of his time volunteering at the Omaha Community Playhouse – the largest community theater in the country - where some of his projects include “Frankenstein”, “A Few Good Men” and several years of “A Christmas Carol”, to name a few. Terry has been volunteering backstage at ECB since 2018, and became President of the nascent Parent Guild in 2019. His daughter Olivia has been a student here since 2012.
