Executive Council Spotlight: Penny Harrison

Executive Council Spotlight: Penny Harrison


The MPCS Executive Council is the key leadership team who helps make the day-to-day decisions in support of fulfilling the MPCS mission. We encourage you to learn more about each member as we feature the various departments weekly.

Title: Head of Preschool

Education: BSEd, Georgia State University

Number of years in my profession: 18

Professional experience: Besides 14 years in the classroom and serving in my third year as an administrator, I am an ordained pastor and served in full-time ministry to children and families for 18 years.

Fun fact: I am a sports fanatic. I love to watch ESPN and would rather go to a baseball, football, or soccer game than to a fancy dinner at a restaurant any day! If I'm not watching a ball game, I am watching a crime drama. (No Hallmark movies for this girl!)

What I'm reading now or favorite book: I usually have more than one book going at a time; one for work, and one for fun. For work, I'm reading Know.Be.Live. For fun, I'm currently reading The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek. My all time favorite book is The Lion, the Witch, and The Wardrobe.

Connections to MPCS: Both of my children attended MPCS. My oldest son, Mitchell, started preschool at MPCS in 1997. He attended through eighth grade and then moved to a magnet high school. My youngest, Matthew,  was a "lifer" at MPCS. He graduated with the class of 2015.

What I love most about MPCS: The obvious answer is being able to live out and share my faith daily with children. The other thing I love about MPCS is the sense of community. I've been a part of this community as a parent and as an educator. My life has been richly blessed in both capacities.

What I love about my role at the school: I love so many thing about my role at MPCS. I love that I get to be a part of the beginning of a family's journey at MPCS. I love that my role involves ministering to and having relationships with parents just as much as with their children. I love leading the most amazing group of teachers who are not only great educators, but are encouraging followers of Jesus. I love serving in the "happiest place on campus!"

My hope for MPCS: My hope is that we continue to live out our mission as a Christian school, where Jesus is glorified in all that we say and do. If we're faithful to that mission, I believe every other hope and goal I/we have for MPCS will be fulfilled.
