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.
