Dr. Wendy TruvillionAssistant Principal for Student Opportunities602-764-6017
Hi, I'm Dr. Wendy Truvillion. I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. An athlete throughout my younger life afforded me a full athletic scholarship to run track at the "track capital of the world" - Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. I was a 6 time All-American and 2-time NCAA Champion. Concluding my athletic career in 1987, I wasn't finished with athletics, so I became the track coach at Georgia Tech at 22 years old. I was one of the youngest coaches in collegiate history at the time. Coached at GT for 7 years and then had an “out of body experience” and moved to The Penn State University to coach track (and teach fitness and weight training classes) for two more years. The cold weather sent me packing back to Atlanta where I started a personal training career while I completed my master’s degree at Georgia State University in Sports Management and my educational specialist degree at Lincoln Memorial University. From personal training I moved onto the education field where I became a PE teacher and Academic Discipline Specialist (ISS) in Cobb County school district for 8 years. I also coached track at McEachern HS while serving as an elementary PE teacher from 1999-2006.
I completed my doctorate degree from Argosy University of Atlanta in 2008, and then aspired to teach at the college level where I am an adjunct professor at Grand Canyon University. After completing eight years at Maryvale High School, I am very, very excited to be the Assistant Principal –Athletics and Activities at Alhambra HS, and excited to be back in athletics. I love my job and my students, as it and they are ever-changing and always challenging.Administrive Assistant: Jorge CarrilloPhone: 602-764-6017
