Latham named first executive director of Northern Neck Montessori School

The board of the Northern Neck Montessori School (NNMS) announced today the appointment of Penny Latham as its first executive director. Penny will work with the leadership of the board and the two heads of the school, Beth Rohne and Suzanne Moughon, to transition the organization beginning in July.

“I’m just thrilled: thrilled that we’ve found someone with Penny’s expertise right under our noses in White Stone, where she and her family have lived since 2000; thrilled by her quick and ready grasp of what our school is and what it does well already; thrilled by the prospect of all the things she’s going to help us do better,” said board president Brad Parks.

“It is my dream to use all of the nonprofit skills I have mastered over the years to bring awareness to the matchless experience that Montessori education has to offer the families in my community. I am excited about the opportunities we have to build on, the dedication of the NNMS faculty and Montessori education. Our students are self-directed learners who are creative and critical thinkers and I cannot wait to begin to share the work we are doing with the Northern Neck community,” said Latham.

Latham can be reached at the NNMS at 804-435-3503. Call for a tour of the school, which is at 97 DMV Drive, Kilmarnock. Visit for more details.

NNMS is licensed by Virginia Department of Social Services. NNMS serves the 10 counties of the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula.
