Nilsa Sotomayor, long-time South Sound educator and former principal of Saltar’s Point Elementary passed away on February 13 after a long illness. Prior to assuming the role of principal at Saltar’s Point, she served as an administrator in the Clover Park School District and taught at the secondary level prior to becoming a school administrator.
“Mrs. Sotomayor was an advocate for children regardless of their grade level. She offered much richness to her students and is a credit to the education profession,” said Mr. Bill Fritz, Steilacoom Historical School District #1 superintendent. She will be missed by her students, the Steilacoom Historical School District #1 staff and the Steilacoom community where she lived.
