Lee expressed his excitement by stating, “My family and I are thrilled to be joining the North Santiam School District! I was so blessed to meet many, many great staff and community members who are so invested in great outcomes for our kids during my previous visits. I am heavily devoted to listening and learning more about the great work that has been done as we look for ways to help every student in the NSSD continue to have an amazing educational experience as they progress through our schools. Again, we are so excited to join the NSSD family and look forward to meeting even more folks in Stayton, Sublimity, Mehama and Lyons in the weeks and months to come. Go Cheetahs! Go Hornets! Go Wildcats! Go Vikings! Go Eagles!"
