Janée is in her second year of serving on the NCS School Board as Board Chair. She served the previous four years as Vice Chair. A certified teacher, she worked in the field of full-time Christian camping ministry and then later as a secondary English teacher in both the public and private school settings. She and her husband, Lou, have three wonderful kids, Abby, Megan, and Garrett, all of whom graduated from NCHS. They are also blessed with three very special grandkids. With a desire to meet the needs of her own three children and help them grow into life-long learners and followers of Jesus, Janée was privileged to homeschool them for a season. She helped coach cross country and track at the middle and high school levels at NCS for several years. She is passionate about NCS growing deep roots leading to a solid foundation thus providing an opportunity for many children in our community to learn in a Christ-centered, academically challenging environment.
