Baugh previously was assistant superintendent and director of teaching and learning for Centennial School District in Warminster, Pennsylvania, from 2013-2020. She was also supervisor of English, reading, language arts and English as a second language for Pennridge School District in Perkasie, Pennsylvania, between 2005-2013.

Baugh has a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education/English from La Salle University in Philadelphia. She also has a Master in Science degree from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, as well as a doctorate’s degree from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Ray is slated to take over as superintendent for the East Grand School District of Granby in July.
