Nancy Barna

Nancy Barna is a Board Member certified by the New Jersey School Board Association. She and her husband, John, raised three children who attended schools in the West Deptford Township School District: Dr. Ryan Barna - WDHS Class of 1998 - Pharmacist; Melissa Barna Jennings - WDHS Class of 2003 – Pharmaceutical Chemist; and Tyler Barna - WDHS Class of 2017 – Junior at Rutgers Honors College – Astrophysics Major.  Nancy attributes their success to the important educational foundation that West Deptford Schools provided to each of them. Much has changed between the years when Ryan attended until Tyler attended WD schools, especially in the area of technology. During that time period, students went from learning exclusively with textbooks to integrating laptops into the classrooms. However, one thing that has not changed over the years is Nancy's dedication to instilling the love of learning in children.

Nancy's leadership roles as a Trustee for the West Deptford Free Public Library; President of the GFWC Woman's Club of West Deptford; Cub Master of West Deptford Scout Pack 296; Committee Member of West Deptford Boy Scout Troop 9; and Girl Scout Leader, provided her with decades of service to the community as well as great opportunities to listen to what is important to the families of West Deptford.

As a volunteer with the Greater Woodbury Cooperative Ministries Food Pantry in West Deptford, Mrs. Barna provided information to the District for students who receive free or reduced lunches in WD schools.  Upon application and documentation, those students can now receive a free lunch twice a week during the summer through GWCM’s Summer Lunchbox Program.

Nancy received her Paralegal Degree from Gloucester County College, and works for county government. She also majored in Political Science with minors in Sociology and pre-law at Rutgers University.

Nancy feels that keeping “STUDENTS FIRST” is her most important focus as she proudly serves on the West Deptford Board of Education.
