We are thrilled to share some exciting news from the heart of our Peninsula School District community. Our very own Chief Financial Officer, Ashley Murphy, has been honored with the WASBO Award of Merit at this year's WASBO Annual Conference in Tacoma.

The WASBO Award of Merit is a recognition given by the Washington Association of School Business Officials to members who have made significant contributions to the organization and have exemplified outstanding service in the field of school business management over the past year. This award highlights the dedication and hard work of individuals like Ashley, who go above and beyond to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of school operations statewide.
