Superintendent will join board of nonprofit for homeless teen shelter

South Whidbey Superintendent Jo Moccia accepted an invitation to join the board of directors for Ryan’s House this week.

Moccia announced her new position at the school board’s business meeting Wednesday.

The number of homeless students on South Whidbey is increasing, and joining the nonprofit’s board would be a proper fit for the school superintendent, Moccia told the school board.

A new resident of Washington, Moccia moved to South Whidbey from Averill Park, N.Y. in July to lead the school district.

Ryan’s House is a proposed homeless shelter for youths on Whidbey Island. It recently broke ground for a facility in Scatchet Head.
