“We appreciate their leadership and commitment to the students and staff of Salem-Keizer, and wish them the very best in retirement,” said Jay Remy, district spokesperson.

In addition, there are some changes of administrative appointments for high school assistant principals. These changes include Ron Richards moving from McKay High School to become the athletic director at McNary.

Other changes include:

• Jim Miller moving from McKay to become assistant principal at West Salem;

• Kristin Jorgenson moves from West Salem to be assistant principal at Sprague;

• Lillian White moves from South to Sprague as assistant principal; and,

“We know that in our schools, leadership matters,” said Remy. “These assistant principals will bring their proven talents to new places and on new teams, and the good work will continue.”
