Megan Triplett – President
Term Ending: June 2021
I am thrilled to be the new President of the Wasatch Peak Academy Board of Directors. I am constantly amazed at the commitment from the parents and the quality of the students that attend Wasatch Peak Academy. There is such energy at the school and it is a real honor for me to be a part of that environment.
I grew up in North Ogden and attended Weber State University where I obtained my associate degree. I come from a family with strong roots in education and I married into a family of educators. I have worked for the Davis Chamber of Commerce for over seven years, where I have been the bookkeeper and financial advisor to the president. It has been a rewarding career for me. Just this past year, after my third child, I moved my office home to be with my children. I reside in Bountiful with my wonderful, supportive husband and my three great kids, one of which attends WPA. We live in an old house that we are constantly renovating.
A few years back I started thinking about my oldest starting school and worried about him getting the attention and challenges he needed. I wasn’t convinced public school was the best option for him. I then heard the buzz about Charter schools. At this same time I had just finished working with the Davis Chamber Women in Business and was looking for a new venture that I could devote some of my time. I am a firm believer in community and service and wanted to find an outlet I could contribute to. I felt like WPA would be a good option for me.
It has been a joy to serve on the Board and watch the school grow over its first few years. I am elated to see the direction that the school is headed in and feel very fortunate to be part of this movement. I get excited about the new programs we’ve introduced and to know that we are not only educating our kids but inspiring them to look beyond themselves and reach out to their community. I look forward to serving your children.
