Penny McGowan

I am pleased to be a true Onslow county native! After receiving my B.S. degree in Business Administration from UNC-Wilmington, I returned to my former high school to work as a media assistant and distance learning facilitator. I will always cherish the memories of working alongside many of my former teachers and watching them transition into retirement. I enjoyed both the library and young students so much that I decided to pursue my MLS degree from East Carolina University. I am fortunate to have a job that I absolutely love where I am visited daily by hundreds of little smiling faces!  In my free time, I enjoy reading and relaxing on the beach.

  • It is the supreme art of the media coordinator to offer a welcoming environment to all.  I will be friendly, dependable, and organized in this task.  I will provide staff members with resources to facilitate their mission.  I will seek to inspire others to find their hidden talents.  Finally, I will strive to make all students feel loved daily.
