#149 Carrie Ehrhardt, High School Principal

(First airdate: January 14, 2020) MOST TEENAGERS ARE NOT DEADBEATS. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis interviews Carrie Ehrhardt, the long-time principal of Port Townsend High School. Carrie is a passionate advocate for teenagers. According to her, the high school attempts to address all of a student’s needs. There are high school students today who are homeless or face substance abuse (both individually or with family members). She makes weekly runs to the Food Bank to help feed hungry students. Carrie and her team care about the mental and physical needs of the students – as well as providing an academically challenging program. High school is perhaps quite a lot different from when you were a student!
