On June 23, 2011, at its regularly scheduled meeting, the Steilacoom Historical School District Board of Directors approved Superintendent Bill Fritz’s recommendation that Jan McCrimmon be appointed as principal of Steilacoom High School for the 2011-12 school year.
“I am honored that I was asked to come back for an additional year to serve as principal at a top-flight high school that I love. I can think of nothing that I would rather do professionally,” said Ms. McCrimmon.
“Jan McCrimmon has served 26 years in public education, and the last nine as the principal of Steilacoom High School. There is nobody more qualified to lead the school than her,” said Board chairman, Michael Winkler.
McCrimmon indicates that she decided to delay retirement to provide leadership continuity for the school and to continue, “unfinished business,” in service to students and their learning.
“We are so happy Ms. McCrimmon is willing to lead the high school for one more year. The school is a great place for students, socially and educationally, and we are glad to have leadership that knows how to make that continue,” said Superintendent Bill Fritz.
