The community is invited to meet Puyallup’s next superintendent, Timothy Yeomans, during a reception on Wednesday, March 28.

The event will be held from 4-5 p.m. at Aylen Junior High School, 101 15th St. S.W., Puyallup.

Puyallup School Board President Greg Heath will introduce Yeomans and his family, as well as several guest speakers from the school district and community who will share some brief remarks.

The Puyallup School Board unanimously agreed on March 6 to offer Yeomans the schools chief job. The board approved his three-year contract on March 12.

Yeomans, superintendent of the Meridian School District in Bellingham, will replace Tony Apostle, who retires at the end of June after eight years as superintendent and 22 years as a Puyallup School District educator.
