NEW TEACHER FEATURE - Get to know them ….
Tri Star has added three faculty members to its teaching staff for the 2018-19 school year: Annette Albers will teach Med Prep half-time. Albers was hired because enrollment for the popular program spiked to over 40 students.
Brett McGillvary will teach the construction program replacing Warren Gregor who passed away in June.
