Working for his old rival, Starr’s Mill welcomes Whitewater High School graduate Chase Penland.  Penland replaces Charlemagne Gibbons as one of the health and team sports teachers.

 “[Starr’s Mill] is the place to be in Fayette county,” Penland said. ”There are a lot of good programs here, the extracurriculars are great. I just knew it was the place to be and a good fit [for me].”

Penland was influenced from a young age to go into a teaching career as his father and aunt were both teachers.  Growing up with them as role models helped shape who he is today. 

“I told my family that If I hadn’t gotten a football scholarship to somewhere, I would have gotten a degree in wildlife and plantation management,” Penland said.

In his free time, Penland is an avid outdoorsman who loves to hunt and fish.
