Council Member Janell Sterner
I am an Arizona native and grew up in Tempe and Mesa. I have two grown children: a son who lives in Payson and a daughter and son-in-law who live in the valley. I’m also blessed with a granddaughter who was born in August.
My family and I started coming to our Payson cabin since 1978. I have seen many changes in Payson over the last four decades. I have also enjoyed the people in Payson for their kind hearts and compassion towards one another. I moved to Payson and became a full time resident in 2013. I love my home and community.
From 2012 to 2013, I served as the D.A.R.E President for the Apache Junction D.A.R.E. Board. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and have taught for over 10 years in the public school system. I am currently the Preschool Director/Teacher at Payson Christian School. I enjoy working with the young preschool children in our community to inspire and nurture them in God’s Word and their educational goals.
I am looking forward to serving you, Payson residents, as your new Town Council member. The only promises I will make to you is to approach every situation with the highest morals and principles to determine the best solutions to make our town the Best Place to Live.
