Principal Jeff McGowan

Meet Principal Jeff McGowan!

Hi, Lynx families! My favorite thing about being a principal is working with staff and students. A few fun facts about me: I love the “Harry Potter” books. My favorite musician is Bruce Springsteen. If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, I would order from Ron’s Drive-In, a restaurant in the Spokane Valley.
