The Washington Community High School Board of Education is pleased to announce that Christopher Armstrong was selected to join the board, filling a recent vacancy. Chris previously served on the board from 2009-2013 and also served as vice president for one year of his term. Chris is a 40 year Washington resident and WCHS graduate. He and his wife met at WCHS, and now their oldest of three children attends their alma mater. His strong belief that education is a foundational tool, and his personal experiences with continued education, career and extra-curricular activities will result in a balanced view. We look forward to working with Chris and feel his previous experience with WCHS and the board of education will be a valuable addition.
