Grace Episcopal Church has named Penelope Wong of Vineyard Haven as the interim director of Grace Preschool, effective Sept. 1. The staff change was necessitated by the resignation of Deborah Jernegan as the Grace Preschool director.

Ms. Wong is well-known on Martha’s Vineyard for her work with Martha’s Vineyard Hospital and Learning Center, the YMCA of Martha’s Vineyard and, most recently, the Tisbury School, where she worked as a kindergarten assistant, teacher, ELL assistant and coordinator.

Fluent in Portuguese, she will be instrumental in expanding the preschool into a bilingual learning environment.
