I’ve worked with the best students, staff and administrators throughout my career and appreciate all the support I received from colleagues along the way. I want my life to always be an example of one that helps others make their most positive impact on the world. This new role will allow me to help more people and to help provide more opportunities for students and staff.”

Shepherd comments, “Our district leadership team and I look forward to working with Jennifer more closely and are excited about what she brings to the table. It’s going to be an amazing year and we are thrilled to be planning our 2021-2022 school year.”
