1.Tell us a little bit about yourself. 

“I have been on the board since the fall of 2007...how time flies when you are having fun! When I started on the board, my three children were students in the district. The last graduated in 2016. I coached youth sports for seventeen years and have worked in forest management for 33 years. My wife, Linda, retired from the HSD after teaching in the district for many years.”

2. What drives your passion for education and for serving on the HSD Board?  

“I serve on the Hockinson School Board to provide an equitable education for those with a softer voice.”

3. What contribution to HSD schools are you most proud of?

“I am most proud of helping to ensure fiscal integrity while providing safe and efficient facilities for our students’ learning. Enhancements to the high school and the building of our new middle school stand out as particularly exciting projects during my time with the district.”

4. What about the Hockinson community inspires you?  

“I'm often amazed and inspired by staff and volunteers of the school district who strive to provide quality education through constant change.”
