I am so excited to have a positive impact on my community via this program.” Deidre is employed full time at the University of Michigan Health System, runs two home based businesses, and enjoys spending time with family and friends.

Upper Peninsula Chapter

Paulette Pepin, Upper Pensinula Chapter President, has lived is Escanaba since she was 8, and she has a Master’s Degree in Special Education. Teaching has always been her passion, and she has been teaching in Gladstone for 17 years. “My love of reading and wish to share it with all of my students led me to Pajama Program. When Scholastic got on board, and shared this amazing program through their book club website, I knew immediately that this was something I wanted to be part of.” Each year since, her class has opted to forgo a gift exchange and instead participate in Pajama Program. They share the gift of pajamas at Christmas and have a pajama party to celebrate! Their generosity inspired Paulette to want to do more, which led her to taking on the role of Chapter President.
