I plan to work with Mr. McDougal to seamlessly transition to the principal role and continue the traditions that have been set, while also creating new traditions with our students and staff,” she added. “I love the fact that once you learn something, it’s yours forever-no one can take that away from you. I am excited to be a part of the learning taking place and memories being made at JPTCASMS.”
