Meet Our Board

 

 

Mike Wharton, Jr., President
Current term expires 2018

The opportunity to serve as a trustee on the SUHSD Board is truly an honor.   I am excited to work with the outstanding existing board members, administration, faculty, and staff on behalf of all of the Districts' students. My private industry experience has taught me the value of collaboration between all vested parties which I believe will prove to be an asset in this role. As a parent of children in our District’s schools, I look forward to helping ensure that we, as a community, continue to prepare our future generation with the tools that they will need to fulfill their dreams.

 

I was raised in the north state and attended school in Anderson and Red Bluff. After graduating from CSU Chico, I spent the next twenty years primarily employed in the semi-conductor industry throughout the west coast and internationally. I returned to Redding to be closer to my parents and earn my teaching credential. I taught Community Day School for 3 years in Red Bluff - and met my wonderful family, Tara, and children Claire and Kevin 11 years ago. We enjoy all the wonderful outdoor activities that the north state has to offer.

My entire family is the product of the public school system.  I attended K-12 in the Anderson school districts, earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Davis and an additional bachelors and a doctorate from the University of California at San Francisco. My wife of 28 years, Teresa, likewise attended K-12 in the Bay Area public schools and is also a UC Davis graduate.  We have five wonderful children, all of whom graduated from the Grant and Shasta Union High School Districts and are attending or graduated from the UC system.  I feel we were all well prepared for our post high school experiences, and I want to assure this success to future Shasta County graduates.

 

Needless to say, I am a firm believer in the California public education system and look forward to seeing our schools continue to work well in educating “our” kids.  Whether these students are on to college, career, or military service, my goal is to enable them to be fully prepared to fulfill their dreams after they graduate from the Shasta Union High School District.

I am truly energized by the opportunity to serve as a SUHSD Board trustee.  I appreciate the collaborative effort required to ensure the success and opportunity for growth of our children.  My involvement with the SUHSD Board is driven by a desire to provide the type of educational experience that breeds inspirational individuals beyond high school.  My background includes a heavy commitment to our youth, including coaching athletics, board service and non-profit work.

 

I graduated from California State University Sacramento.  Subsequently, I secured my J.D. from Golden Gate University in San Francisco.  Outside of my Board service, I am a practicing Attorney with my own law offices serving Shasta County, Humboldt County, and the surrounding areas.  My professional experience lends incite to dispute resolution and attention to ethics, fairness, and a balancing of different perspectives.

 

My remarkable wife Cristie works for Enterprise Elementary School District and we have resided in Shasta County for over 16 years.  We have two children, Ethan (8th Grader), and Joseph (10th Grader in Shasta Union High School District).  We stay busy taking advantage of the local outdoor recreation, and attending the boy's extracurricular and sporting events.

I am honored to help foster the importance of making sure the children in our community have a solid foundation during their educational years.  Serving as a board member is both an honor and a privilege, as well as a commitment I do not take lightly.  I feel strongly that our children are the pathway to the future and firmly believe it is our responsibility to invest in their growth and development.

 

I was born and raised in Sacramento and moved to Chico to pursue my college education.  That is where I met my husband. We both had a great desire to move further north after graduation and start a family.  Both our children were born here and we have thoroughly enjoyed raising them in Redding and watching them excel in school.

 

My husband and I have very strong ties to the North State. He is a Calfire Captain and I have worked for Caltrans for the last 17 years managing various transportation programs and projects. My career has afforded me many great opportunities, allowing me to work with a wide range of internal and external partners and be a true public servant.  In addition to my full-time job at Caltrans, I have been an indoor cycling instructor at the Shasta Family YMCA for the last nine years.  My family is very involved in the community and I pledge to do all I can to nurture the success of this community’s children!

It cannot be said often enough, that the future success of our nation depends upon how well we educate our young people today. The challenges and opportunities our students will face, after they graduate from high school, are difficult for us to foresee. It is our responsibility as parents, teachers, administrators and trustees to ensure that our students have the tools to compete and succeed in the rapidly changing economic landscape. Our students, in the Shasta Union High School District, are fortunate to have dedicated teachers, staff and administrators who truly care about students and their future success. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work together with all of these talented people, to provide our students with the best that the educational community has to offer. 

Our family moved to Palo Cedro in 1996. We feel very blessed to live in an area with such magnificent natural beauty. We have three terrific kids, all attending high school at present. Therefore , my hobbies are, helping with homework, attending athletic events, volunteering at school, raising swine for 4-H and caring for two dogs, two ducks, a cat, four doves and a rabbit.
