Ron has been a San Diego County resident since 1961, and attended Helix High School in La Mesa. He made his stage debut, and only career appearance in his high school musical, Oklahoma, as a cast dancer.
After graduating from San Diego State University in 1975, and earning his teaching credential, he and his wife, Molly, moved to Escondido to begin careers with the Escondido Union School District. During his 33 years with EUSD, he served as middle school teacher, middle school assistant principal, and elementary school principal. He retired in 2008, after working as the founding principal of Bernardo Elementary. Ron has always enjoyed music and music education, especially choral arts.
Ron is active in Escondido through volunteer work. He served on the Boys and Girls Club of Escondido Board of Directors. He now serves on the local Salvation Army Advisory Board and is a member of the Rotary Club of Escondido.
He hopes that his role with the Escondido Choral Arts Foundation will help further the amazing work of the performing artists in both the adult chorale and children’s choruses.
