Noreen stepping down to take job in Hood River County School District


After serving for nine years on the Sherwood School Board, Kevin Noreen accepts a job as human resources director for the Hood River County School District

Longtime Sherwood School Board member Kevin Noreen has submitted his letter of resignation from the board effective Nov. 14.

In a letter to the board and Superintendent Heather Cordie, Noreen said he has been hired by the Hood River County School District as their director of human resources, noting that meetings for that district conflict with meetings of the Sherwood School Board.

“This decision is not made lightly,” Noreen wrote. “I have spent a great deal of time examining the situation I find myself in and looked at what is best for the Sherwood community as well as for my future career in the Hood River County School District.”

Noreen said his nine years on the board have been “the most fulfilling volunteer position I have held up to this point in my life.”

The board must now appoint a replacement and is seeking interested candidates with applications due by 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 24. Call the district at 503-825-5003 for more information.
