Julie Weiland stays hard at work to help keep the school running.

 

When students and guests visit the main office, they are always greeted with a warm smile and enthusiastic “hello” from Julie Weiland, the school secretary. Weiland started working as a custodian before working in the office. When the opportunity to get a position in the office presented itself, she jumped on it. She has been the secretary for six years now. 

“My son graduated from Stockbridge in 2017, so I was kind of involved in the school when he was here. And then the position came up, and it’s nice and close to home so I took it,” Weiland said. 

Weiland grew up in Detroit and graduated from Pinckney High School. She enjoys gardening, her dogs and watching football. Weiland has always enjoyed watching the Detroit Lions, but her love for them started only a few years ago.

“Three years ago, I started getting into [the Lions] more when I went to my first game. It was super exciting and fun to watch and experience the excitement in that atmosphere,” Weiland said. 

This year Weiland went to six games and even secured a ticket to watch the NFC Championship game from the Lions stadium.  

“I was excited for the team this year because they came farther than what everyone was expecting this year,” Weiland said. 

Weiland recently inherited several beehives with the new house she bought. Within the next couple of years, Weiland hopes to start selling honey from her bees and begin a new and exciting journey owning and operating her own honey-making business.
