Craig McKee, Columbia High School Principal
I live in White Salmon with my wife Brindi and our two daughters. Jewel just graduated from Northern Arizona University with a degree in social work and Lexy is in her junior year at Northern Arizona University.
To be in such a beautiful place doing what I love, I’m truly “living the dream.”
2017 Welcome Letter
Dear Columbia High School community,
I am excited about the 2017-2018 school year at Columbia High School. I look forward to seeing all the new faces as well as our returning students. It will be a year of academics, rigor and opportunities to build memories that will last a lifetime.
We have a talented and caring staff at Columbia High School. They work hard to help each and every one of our students to gain knowledge, grit, and live the BRUIN WAY. We want our students to Be Responsible, United, Inspiring, Nice, Willing, and Active. The Y lets students know, “You can accomplish your goals and dreams.”
At CHS it is our hope that students will not only receive the knowledge they need to be successful in life, but also learn valuable life lessons through participation in clubs, athletics, and activities.
I would like to thank the community for supporting Columbia High School by ensuring our staff and students have access to what they need to provide a quality education for all kids. It takes a community effort to make sure our kids are successful.
I feel lucky to be in such a caring community.
Craig E. McKee
