Ohlone Principal Bill Overton Retires


I was happy to attend the retirement celebration for long-time Ohlone teacher and Principal Bill Overton (seen here playing the guitar for a campus sing-along).  Bill served at Ohlone for more than 30 years and will be missed by the entire PAUSD community.  His commitment to Ohlone's Core Values and to the Ohlone Way leaves a strong legacy for both former and future students.  I was able to stop by the Ohlone Volunteer Thank You party a few days before this celebration and Bill was in great spirits for his next adventures.  The Ohlone community is eager to embrace their new Principal, Louise "Nicki" Smith, an experienced Principal for more than 15 years in several schools with similar philosophies of teaching and learning.  For the past three years, she has served as a reading specialist at Ohlone, so she is already an integral part of the school family.  Congratulations, Bill, and welcome to Nicki!
