BOONE — Appalachian State University graduate, Jenny Darcy, came one step closer to her lifelong goal of completing Montessori school training with a $2,000 grant from Philanthropic Educational Organization.
Darcy completed her undergraduate degree in elementary education at Appalachian State University in 2016. After graduating, she moved to Greensboro then to Wilmington to teach third and fourth grade. Having grown up in Boone, she found herself missing the mountains. In 2018, she decided to return to Boone and began teaching at Mountain Pathways School.
