WWVA Graduates Join Teaching Staff
Walla Walla Valley Academy welcomes three former graduates to their faculty this year. Tyler Anderson, a 1992 graduate, joins the staff teaching history. Chuck Morrison retired this summer after teaching history for the past 20 years. Anderson, his wife Stephanie, and their son came to College Place from Paradise Adventist Academy where he taught the past year. Before that, they were at Redding Adventist Academy for 10 years. "I like being a teacher because it is exciting to help students prepare to impact the future," says Anderson.
Jeremy Irland, a 1999 graduate, is serving as choir and band instructor. Irland completed his masters of music in vocal performance from the University of Washington in 2008. He is excited to be back in the Walla Walla Valley. Irland's goal at WWVA is "to create music that they will be able to remember for the rest of their lives."
Karalee Wagner, a 1992 graduate, fills the position of administrative assistant, previously done by Patty Nelson. Wagner previously served on the Walla Walla Chamber of Commerce.
WWVA welcomes back these graduates for a great school year.
