JWood Raw Elementary School Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

We were honored to have so many family and friends of the school's namesake in attendance. JWood Raw was a Navy pilot, a longtime WSCD educator and a family man. He worked for WCSD for 37 years, including 23 years as principal of Dilworth Middle School. He was a Navy pilot during World War II and volunteered for years with the Reno Junior Ski Program at Sky Tavern. Principal Jonna AuCoin and her staff promised to honor his legacy and share it with all future Jaguars students.
