School of Education's Grant Writing Funds Playground

Holy Family University

On Thursday, September 24, two School of Education faculty members, Dr. Janet McNellis and Dr. Patricia Joergensen, took two Education students, Hannah Britland and Valarie Killian, to Antonia Pentoja Charter School to help build a playground.


The school has been planning this playground for eight years.  The principal of the school, Sandra Gonzalez, is a doctoral student in our Ed.D. in Educational Leadership and Professional Studies program. Ms. Gonzalez took a doctoral course with Dr. McNellis last year and as part of the course wrote the application for the KaBOOM grant that funded this playground.
