Penny Stoss '92
Stoss transitions to the role of director for a new “Learning Academy” that is being developed through Hutchinson Regional Healthcare. Expected to be in operation in 2023, this in-house childcare center will provide childcare for local healthcare system employees.
The goal is to serve roughly 135 children, newborn to elementary age, and, in the facility director’s words “to remove a layer of stress from hard-working parents.” Working closely with state agencies and an advisory council, Stoss hopes that providing this necessary service will aid in the retention and recruitment of experienced employees.
Penny Stoss graduated with a Master of Arts in Teaching from Friends University in 1992 and most recently served as the assistant superintendent and curriculum director of USD 309 Nickerson/South Hutchinson.
