JIM is a past administrator and principal in the Renton School District Jim brings a deep understanding of the incredible impact that the services provided by Communities In Schools of Renton (CISR) has on students at risk of dropping out. As principal of Kennydale Elementary Jim witnessed this impact first hand and has supported CISR from it’s beginning. Jim has worked and lived in Renton since 1978 and believes Renton is the best city of the pacific northwest due in part to the important community services that help families in need. He loves being close to Lake Washington, sailing the Puget Sound and gunkholing the San Juan and Gulf Islands. He also loves down hill skiing and has logged in many hours of scuba diving in the Puget Sound and throughout many of the Caribbean Islands.
