Longtime operations director retires

CHS principal will begin new role as educational resources director

After 36 years in public education, including 29 in the Camas School District, Operations Director Bryan McGeachy will retire in August.
Current Camas High School Principal Steve Marshall will be moving into a redefined version of this position as Director of Educational Resources.
McGeachy has served as the district operations director for the past 10 years.
He noted he will miss the relationships with students and staff members the most, as well as the variety of work in the operations department.
The Operations director oversees custodial, grounds, energy conservation, maintenance, transportation, shop and warehouse staff.
“The staff in all these areas are top professionals, and they know why they’re here,” McGeachy said. “They dedicate themselves to making Camas school facilities safe, clean, and the best possible teaching and learning environments for our students, staff and parents.”
Marshall to oversee operations
In his new role, Marshall will oversee operations as well as new duties related to community partnerships, and student/staff safety.
He’ll be working closely with the community education, and career and technical education departments to develop relationships with businesses and the greater community to expand opportunities for students.
“Steve has done an outstanding job as principal of Camas High School,” noted Jeff Snell, superintendent. “Since he was hired, Steve developed an identity for CHS within the Camas community. He created a climate that staff and students enjoy, and he provided the leadership to take the instructional program to the next level of excellence.”
Marshall noted he will miss daily interaction with staff and students most.
“But I’ll really miss the the everyday adventures, whether it is a conversation with a student, something normal, or something extraordinary,” he said.
