New director at Wasatch UniServ
The Wasatch UniServ has appointed former Moab principal James Lewis as UniServ director. He replaces Elaine Tzourtzouklis who served as UniServ director for 11 years prior to her passing in March.
“I’m excited to make the move to the Wasatch Front and this new position,” said Lewis. “I absolutely love students and look forward to doing whatever I can to ensure that all students have a great school filled with excellent teachers. I’m impressed with the teachers and leadership I’ve met thus far and look forward to the future with a focus on students.”
Prior to becoming principal at Moab Charter School, Lewis taught nine years on the Navajo Reservation at Whitehorse High School and two years at Navajo Mountain, purported to be the most remote high school in the contiguous 48 states.
Lewis was and raised in the small town of Sweet Home, Oregon. He studied at BYU and graduated with a degree in History. He has two Master’s degrees, one in Secondary Education and the other in Education Administration and Supervision. He is the father of five children and has served as an association representative, a local president, UniServ vice president (High Desert Uniserv) and is currently an elected NEA Representative Assembly Delegate at Large.
The Wasatch UniServ serves educators in Salt Lake City, Murray City and Tooele County School Districts.
