Carleen is a graduate of Pacific Lutheran University with a degree in education, and minors in Political Science and Music. She became the librarian for Hermiston Junior Academy when her son entered Kindergarten 37 years ago. At that time Hermiston Junior Academy had next to nothing in books, but over the years with hard work and dedication, we now have a real library. It has always been a blessing over the years for her to work with new teachers and principals, and more importantly, seeing the love that the children have for reading. She is looking forward to this year's adventures.
