Jennifer Truitt-Lewis ' 04
Jennifer is currently the Principal of Colonel Johnston Elementary School located at Fort Huachuca in Arizona and an adjunct faculty member at Northern New Mexico College. Jennifer was an Elementary Education major with a minor in Psychology at Salisbury University.

Her commitment to academic excellence was evident at her graduation when she was adorned with many cords representing the various academic clubs and national honor societies in which she was active, as well as one indicating she had earned the honor of Magna Cum Laude. After graduation, Jennifer started her teaching career in the Wicomico County School District. Since then, Jennifer has taken every opportunity to ensure that her goal to become a principal would eventually be realized. Jennifer went on to earn two master’s degrees in Education.
