Jack Smith


Jack Smith has made his career as an educator, athletic director, assistant principal, and principal in his 32 years of dedicated service to public education. Smith received his bachelor of arts and secondary teaching credentials at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He received a master's and administrative credential from California Lutheran University. From 1970 to 1983, he taught math and coached gootball, track, and other sports. He became assistant principal and, eventually principal of Nordhoff High School from 1994 until his retirement in June of 2001.



Since his retirement, Smith has remained active. His love of sports and working with youth has led him to coaching the girls' basketball team at Rio Mesa High School in Oxnard. He is looking for an opportunity to "give back to the community" and has been running 10-K's for the American Heart Assorciation and Ojai Valley Community Hospital. He plans to donate the fee for putting on these events to Nordhoff High School. Smith's focus for presentations for Living Treasures will be "Character Development Standards for Youth". He would be interested in participating as a mentor.
