He has served in school administration for 21 years in several roles, now including Executive Director of New Market Skills Center. Matt is married with three adult children, two still at home, and three grandchildren. He has volunteered his time to several organizations over the years, such as the Association of Washington School Principals, the Evergreen College teacher preparation advisory board, and the South Sound Council since 2020.

It is exciting to work with students to help them make those connections. It is what education is all about!”
