Wendy McGinnis: "You Are the Advantage"
Additionally, the Board presented PYLUSD Adapted PE Specialist Wendy McGinnis with the district's prestigious "You Are The Advantage" award. Wendy's devotion to special education students exemplifies the district's core values of excellence, collaboration, and integrity.

Since September 1993, Wendy has taught adapted physical education (PE) for infants to adult transition. She is currently the PYLUSD department chair for the adapted PE specialists. She is also the local program coordinator for the Orange County PYLUSD Special Olympics team. Wendy has coached the gymnastics, bowling and track teams, and has impressively led over 300 athletes in the Special Olympic games for 20 years.

Her commitment and passion for special education students is second to none. Congratulations to Wendy for earning this distinction!
