New Faces at PAA
Portland Adventist Academy (PAA) is delighted to introduce two new staff members.
Chris Jones is the new vice principal for finance. He comes to us from Meadow Glade Elementary School in Battle Ground, Wash., where he and his wife Julie live with their two cats and one dog.
Ty Johnson fills the vice principal for administration office. He is owner and CEO of Bear Bay Lodge in Alaska where he spends his summers. Johnson already has a history at PAA. His wife, Dawn, is the PAA office manager and a graduate of the class of 1987. He has also spent time coaching the PAA golf team as well as the boys' and girls' basketball teams. Ty and Dawn have two children.
In addition, a few positions at PAA have been rearranged. Terry Verlo has returned to the classroom full-time after three years of hard work as the vice principal for administration. Les Zollbrecht has chosen to remain in the classroom setting and has handed over the chaplain position to Greg Phillips. Steve McFeters has taken on the responsibilities of director of plant services after Larry Caudell's retirement. Terrance Baltazar is leaving the PAA cafeteria to his wife Dawn and joins McFeters in keeping the campus in working order.
