Dr. Jeffrey West
Class of 1981

Q.  What is a favorite high school memory?

A.  Participating in sports.  Things like traveling on the "Bearcat" bus to  games, going to practice, and hanging with my teammates.  We had coaches you could have fun with and you knew they truly cared about you.

Q.  What was your toughest class and why?

A.  Geometry, at that age it just didn't connect for me.  The ironic thing is I went on to become a Math and Science teacher.

Q.  Who is a teacher that you will never forget?

A.  Rod Ehler

Q.  What is your proudest moment personally and professionally?

A.  My proudest moment personally is with my wife Laura.  We have raised two exceptional daughters that have become amazing young women.  Professionally, when I was leaving as the Principal at Sidney Middle School after 7 years to become a superintendent, while attending a school concert, unknown to me, they played a song just for me and the audience gave me a standing ovation.  There's no doubt how people feel about you when they show that kind of appreciation.  It still moves me to this day when I think about it.
