A community reception for former Tumwater School Board member Robert “Bob” Barclift will be held 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Nov. 3 at Peter G. Schmidt Elementary School, 237 Dennis St. SE.
Barclift worked as a teacher and principal for the Tumwater School District for 30 years. He also worked part time in law enforcement for 17 years, including service with the Olympia Police Department. After retiring from the school district, Barclift worked in law enforcement full time for about a decade and retired as the Lewis County undersheriff.
Barclift recently resigned from his director District 4 position, stating that the demands for the position had become a little exhausting and he was ready for someone else to take it over. He served on the school board for 23 years.
The school board is scheduled to appoint someone to complete the final year of Barclift’s term at its Dec. 8 meeting.
Barclift’s reception is open to the public. No RSVP is required.
