  • Mrs. Margaret (Peggy) Sollon joined the West Jefferson Hills District this September as the McClellan Elementary School Principal. Previously, she had worked as an elementary principal for the Washington School District, and the Fort Cherry School District.  Prior to her administrative experience, she taught as a middle school teacher for Trinity School District.

    Mrs. Sollon obtained her Bachelor Degree from West Virginia University, and her Masters Degree in early childhood education and educational leadership from Carlow University. She continued her education at Carlow University and received her elementary and secondary principal papers with a supervisory certificate for early childhood programming.

    She has been instrumental in developing the Responsive-to-Intervention model and has spoken at the Governor’s conference for its implementation.  Mrs. Sollon was responsible for the installation of the first full day kindergarten program at Washington School.  She developed collaboration with the head start programs, which developed pre-school programs housed in the public school setting.

    She is happily married to Phillip Sollon of Canonsburg and they have three children, Elizabeth Ann, Phillip Louis, and Louis Michael, and a new granddaughter, Olivia Loren. She loves the theater, loves to decorate her home, play cards, and most of all enjoys being with family. She is actively involved with her church where she is a Eucharist Minister and sits on the parish counsel.

    Her educational philosophy is simply… “All children can learn…children are our top priority”.  “Life affords no greater responsibility, no greater privilege, than the raising of the next generation….”C. Everett Koop
