NC Pre director
Arlene grew up in Warrenton and graduated from Warrenton High School. She has a diploma in Early Childhood Education and General Business from Clatsop Community College. Arlene is married with three adult children, and she resides in the Jewell area of Clatsop County. Arlene has been involved in children’s ministry for over 36 years. Along with teaching Sunday School and many different Vacation Bible School ministries, Arlene has been in active leadership for AWANA Clubs for 25 years. Arlene has a huge heart for the salvation of the next generation and feels strongly that our time to share the Lord with young people is growing shorter. Her joy of working with young children led her to the development and start up of Charis Kids in Cannon Beach, Oregon. Arlene has also had the pleasure of working at Calvary Lutheran Preschool in Hillsboro, Oregon which is a “learn by play” preschool. As the current Director of NC Pre, Arlene seeks to combine both the skills that come with an “academic” program and the freedom to explore that children gain from a “learn by play” program into a well-rounded preschool education for the children of Clatsop County.

She has a variety of experience both in leadership positions and working with kids throughout high school and her adult life. She has been involved in after-school programs at public elementary schools, led and participated in several community volunteer programs, and has been involved with both the church she grew up in and, since moving to the coast, NCFF! Most recently, she has volunteered at NCFF through AWANA and one of the preschool Sunday school classes. Becca is currently pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Education from Western Governors University.
