WARSAW — Denny Duncan is running for a seat on the Warsaw School Board.
Duncan, of Winona Lake, filed last week for the District 5 seat currently held by Jeremy Mullins. He told InkFreeNews that he believes Mullins doesn’t plan to run for reelection.
Duncan is a former Warsaw Community Schools’ administrator. He served as Jefferson Elementary School principal for 18 years as well as Atwood Elementary School principal and Warsaw High School assistant principal.
He also was K-12 summer school director and district Title 1 director and a Washington Elementary School teacher.
Duncan, now retired, last worked as director of alumni engagement at Grace College and Seminary, also having served as director of correctional education for Grace.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to run for the school board because it gives me an opportunity to serve the community in an area in which I’m especially passionate about,” Duncan said. “I have four grandchildren who are or will soon be in these schools, and I’ve spent 34 years working here. I feel a personal investment in the well-being of the district.”
Duncan has a Bachelor of Science in elementary education from Grace and a Master of Science in school administration from Indiana University.
He’s married to Glenda, and they have five daughters who all went to WCS. The two also have nine grandchildren.
Duncan currently serves on the Winona Lake Town Council, having done so for seven years.
If elected to the Warsaw School Board, he’d have to resign from his council seat as state law prohibits people from serving in two elected positions at the same time.
