Penny's education began with STEM.  She earned a Bachelors of Science in Geology from the University of Georgia.  It includes a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction, and Doctorate in Education, Leadership and Innovation, both from the University of Colorado, School of Education.   Her dissertation was on the development of educational standards and the political landscape that led to No Child Left Behind.
 
Leading up to accepting her current position, she previously designed a STEM school in Adams 12. It grew from 200 to 4,000 students in three years on several campuses. The transformative power of a great school changes lives. The lucky ones selected by lottery have an opportunity she wishes all students could share. Before being the founding principal, she worked in the central office supporting 52 schools. Prior to district work, she served at CDE (Colorado Dept. of Education), responsible for the science CSAP- selecting test items, organizing the review process and overseeing the scoring process.
The Rotary Club of Castle Pines is committed to helping and supporting organizations that help the youth of Douglas County. The primary beneficiary of our efforts is the Douglas County Y.E.S.S. (Youth Education and Safety in Schools). Y.E.S.S. is a proactive collaboration between law enforcement, schools and the community to develop life skills for our future leaders.
 
The Y.E.S.S. program deals with a wide variety of issues including teen relationships (bullying, harassment, abuse) Internet/digital safety (cyber bullying and sexting), and substance abuse.
     
The Y.E.S.S program offers  a community suicide prevention program that includes free SafeTalk (suicide awareness for everyone) training.
 
 It was an honor to have Phyllis Harvey, Program Coordinator, Deputies Jay Martin, Jay Carnes, and Sergeant Lori Bronner at our meeting Thursday.  Deputy Carnes gave us a great overview about the successes that the program has had, and some exciting news. They are working with a large corporate sponsor that is interested in taking the program nationwide.
