UAS Alumni is new Dzantik’I Heeni Principal
It took a nationwide search before the Juneau School District hired a candidate from its own back yard.
Dzantik’i Heeni Middle School has a permanent principal now with the hire of assistant principal Molly Yerkes, who has served as interim principal since August.
She earned her bachelor’s in liberal arts with a social sciences emphasis from the University of Alaska Southeast, English as a second language endorsement from the University of Hawaii, Master of Arts in teaching from UAS, master’s in educational leadership from the University of Alaska Anchorage and will finish a master’s in public administration this spring at UAS.
