JoEllen graduated from Lassen High School in 1981, she attended Lassen Community College and later California State University, Chico. She has worked and managed The Pardner Inc. for 30 years and has helped her husband Dennis on the “Wood Ranch” for 27 years. She has two children Trevor and Danielle.
JoEllen became interested in the Foundation because her Grandmother Ellen Collins was a long time teacher of Lassen College.
JoEllen thinks it is wonderful to have a continuing education facility in Susanville, and hopes it can be strong for years to come.
