Basin PBS Announces New Director of Education
Basin PBS has announced the arrival of Johnna Pullig as its new director of education, a press release said. Pullig, a Big Lake native, is a world traveler and passionate about education.
Pullig attended Texas A&M University where she earned her bachelor’s degree in anthropology with a minor in museum studies.
After university, she spent 10 months with NET Ministries Australia organizing, leading and participating in retreats for students in grades 4-12. Pullig fell in love with education and wanted more. Upon her return, she taught 8th grade social studies for three years and coached volleyball, basketball, and track and field at Reagan County College in Big Lake.
After moving to Midland to be closer to loved ones, she discovered that Basin PBS would allow her to use her knowledge and skills gained from teaching, to serve the community in ways she previously could not.
“I want to continue to foster relationships with our local school districts, daycare centers and homeschooled families in Midland and Odessa, but also reach out to those in the greater Permian Basin region,” Pullig said in the Press release. “Why Basin PBS?” »
Laura Wolf, CEO and General Manager of Basin PBS, said in the press release, “Johnna’s experience in a small school district gives us insight into how to best serve the small communities in our viewing area. We are thrilled to have Johnna on board as we advance education efforts in West Texas.
