My name is Kelly Dennis and I am the School Site Secretary for Summit Charter Collegiate Academy. I have been married for 34 years and have 4 amazing children. While my Husband was serving in the Navy we had the opportunity to live in Charleston South Carolina for 4 years. We loved experiencing all the history and beauty of the area while we were there. I also lived in Bakersfield for 8 years before moving back to Porterville to be closer to our extended families.
While living in Bakersfield I attended Bakersfield College and worked as an instructional aide in the Panama School District. I started working for the Burton School District in 1994 as a cashier and I have worked at Oak Grove, Burton Elementary, Burton Middle School, Jim Maples Academy, Buckley Elementary, Summit Charter Academy Mathew, and now at Summit Charter Collegiate Academy.
In 2001 I left Burton to work with my father in his Real Estate Appraisal Business until his retirement in 2006. I had the privilege to serve on the original Summit Charter Board of Directors for two years as a parent Board Member. I have a special place in my heart for Summit and believe we are achieving great things with our unique design and the opportunities that we are offering our students.
