We will be welcoming three new faculty members next month. I know they will receive a warm welcome from the Carlisle family.
Lauren Mixter will join us to teach chorus to grades 4-12 and Upper School Drama. Additionally, she will help with Middle School Drama and direct plays for Upper School and Middle School. She will be able to support our musical productions as well, as she graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Vocal Performance and Musical Theatre. Lauren and her husband moved to Danville only a year ago, but she has already made a name for herself with the Patrick Henry CC Patriot Players, performing as Wednesday in The Addams Family Musical and as Fiona in Shrek the Musical.
Shannon Reynolds comes to Carlisle with ten years’ experience teaching English in Henry County high schools. She will be teaching ninth and tenth grade English as well as electives in Writing and Film Study. Shannon and her husband reside in Ridgeway, and their son Robert will be a student in our PK4 class this fall.
Finally, we are pleased to announce that Michelle Jamison will take over nursing duties in Martinsville. Michelle earned her LPN license at Patrick Henry CC and has worked locally at Carilion Clinic and Paths Community Medical Center. She and her children live in Martinsville.
Please stop in and welcome them when school begins in August!
