I’m excited about what Robyn will bring to the game,” said Superintendent Dr. David Faltys. “She’s the perfect person to lead our Lady Dragon Basketball Program. She has the enthusiasm, abilities, and knowledge of the game, but she also knows the importance of building strong relationships with kids.”
