Experienced Principal Opens New High School

Opening up a new school takes hard work and dedication; but Maple Mountains High’s Principal, John Penrod, is up to the task. Mr. Penrod spent most of his career teaching elementary, kindergarten through sixth grade. After a while, he was assigned to become an administrator of a junior high. When he isn’t teaching, Mr. Penrod is hiking, fishing, or spending time with his five children and nine grandchildren. Teaching is not the only job Mr. Penrod has had. One of his first and most interesting jobs was collecting garbage in Provo.

Our girl’s tennis team squared off against Skyview August 25, 2009, at 3:30pm here at Maple Mountain High School. The competition was intense and a hard-hitting fight from beginning to end. Although our girls may not have won, they still put up a tough match against Skyview and exemplified good sportsmanship. Calley Bankhead (1st Varsity Singles) defeated her opponent in a tie breaker. Anna Cronquist (2nd Varsity Singles) also battled against her foe, but ended up losing in another tie breaker.
