Nancy Barna

Nancy Barna is a board member who is certified by the New Jersey School Board Association. Over a period of three decades, she and her husband, John, raised their children who attended schools in the West Deptford Township School District. Much has changed over those years, including advancements in technology. Students have gone from learning exclusively with textbooks to integrating laptops into the classrooms. One thing that has not changed is Nancy's dedication to instilling the love of learning in children. This District is second to none, and has provided an important educational foundation for her own children: Dr. Ryan Barna - WDHS Class of 1998 - Pharmacist; Melissa Barna Jennings - WDHS Class of 2003 – Pharmaceutical Chemist; and Tyler Barna - WDHS Class of 2017 – Rutgers' Honors College, Sophomore and Intern for Princeton University’s Department of Astrophysics.

Nancy's leadership roles as a Trustee of the West Deptford Free Public Library; President of the GFWC Woman's Club of West Deptford; Cubmaster of West Deptford Cub Scout Pack 296; Committee Member of West Deptford Boy Scout Troop 9; and West Deptford Girl Scouts, have provided her with decades of experience in serving those community non-profits as a member of their boards.

Keeping the focus on the students of the District is of utmost importance to Nancy. Her volunteer service with the Greater Woodbury Cooperative Ministries Food Pantry, Scouting and Woman’s Club has given her great opportunities to listen to what is important to the families in West Deptford.

Nancy is received her Paralegal Degree from Gloucester County College, and she majored in Political Science with a minor in Sociology and Pre-Law at Rutgers University-Camden. She has over 30 years of experience as a Paralegal and has worked as assistant to the Comptroller of the bank now known as Wells Fargo.
