Tuesday, August 21, 2012
New Camas High School Athletic Director Josh Gibson is already making the rounds.
The 35-year-old spent a few hours at football practice last week. On Monday, he visited with volleyball players, soccer athletes and golfers in the morning, before meeting cross country runners, swimmers and tennis players in the afternoon. This is his way of showing that every athlete and coach in Camas matters.
"Our kids and coaches do such a phenomenal job of representing our community," Gibson said. "It is such an honor for me to have the opportunity to be a part of all the great things they have accomplished, and what they are going to continue to do."
Gibson graduated from CHS in 1995. He earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Western Washington University in Bellingham, and a master’s degree in teaching from City University in Vancouver. He moved back to Camas in 2001, taught math at the high school for three years and was a guidance counselor for two years.
