Meet the Staff: Melissa Pennell, Treasurer

November 9, 2017

Following the success of our introductions to our new staff members with the "Meet the New Staff" feature stories, we would now like to take time to introduce the community to all of our staff members throughout the district! Each week, we will feature members of the Deer Park family with a short question and answer session.  We hope this allows everyone to become familiar with all of the wonderful faculty and staff around Deer Park!
