Donald A. Denning of DuPont was formally sworn in on May 7 to the Board of Directors of Steilacoom Historical School District No. 1.
Mr. Denning was appointed to fill the District’s Director Position No. 1.
“I am looking forward to learning the job and continuing with what the board already has done,” he said.
After serving in the Marine Corps for more than 21 years, Mr. Denning serves as the Western Regional Operations Manager for Lee Technologies. The historic school district’s newest board member is originally from Vashon Island, WA. He graduated from Kennedy High School in Burien before beginning his Marine Corps career. Denning and his wife, Kathleen, of Federal Way, are parents of four children, all enrolled in Steilacoom schools.
“As a lifelong resident of Washington,” said Mr. Denning, “I have stayed current with most major issues affecting this area. From Sound Transit to Growth Management, I strive to stay informed on issues and events that impact our region.”
Most recently he has been involved with the city of DuPont, specifically with the city’s fire levy and, tangentially, with the mine expansion proposal.
He also is active with his sons’ participation with the DuPont Cub Scouts and Steilacoom Boy Scouts.
“We are looking forward to working with Don,” said Sam Scott, SHSD Board Chairman. “His work background will be an asset to the board.”
