It doesn’t surprise me that Torey has been nominated. He is an amazing human being! I met him years ago when he coached my daughter and his daughters basketball team. He was one of the coaches over the years that truly believed in my daughter, to the point where she wanted to continue playing the game. He has a way of instilling greatness in others, while expecting them to do their very best. He has such a positive attitude no matter what is going on around him. He is a “life-giver” and I’m truly blessed to call him a friend.

Torey is my “Big” little brother. I have been proud of him since he was born, but don’t tell him all that. :-) He has always been a force to be reckoned with and I have seen him face adversity with grace, humanity, and determination. His leadership roles have grown throughout the years. Torey has always been an influential and confident leader from his high school football days, to his military service, to being a caring husband and father. In his current job at the University Place School District he is able to use a myriad of his skills to affect many. He is selfless and works tirelessly for all of the students, parents, educators, administrators, and staff to produce positive outcomes for all. I could not be prouder of his accomplishments. But more importantly our beloved Mother who was an educator in western Washington for over 30 years is undoubtedly looking down and smiling the biggest smile. Love you my Brother!
