Outstanding teachers endorse outstanding former students

One of the greatest satisfactions of teaching for many years at Bonners Ferry High School is being able to watch students mature into adulthood and become successful, productive members of society. Two of these are Travis Stolley and Jim Woodward who share many positive qualities.

Both Travis and Jim have honorably served their country. Travis served in the Marine Corp for nine years during which he was deployed four times into war zones. During his time in the Marines, he was promoted to the rank of staff sergeant and supervised as many as 30 Marines at a time.

After graduating from the University of Idaho, Jim also served in the military, completing a program in nuclear power and submarine operations and serving active duty in the Navy.

After serving their country, both men came home to North Idaho where they currently are active in their respective counties. Travis has worked as a patrol officer for both the city of Bonners Ferry and the Boundary County Sheriff’s office. He has a tremendous rapport with youth, having previously served as the School Resource Officer and now currently hails as the head coach for the Bonners Ferry High School wrestling team.

Likewise, Jim is very community oriented — currently a director for Northern Lights, a Sagle Fire District committee member, and also a member of the Bonner General Hospital Foundation Advisory Board. In addition, last fall Jim volunteered his crew, his time, and his equipment to dismantle the old bleachers at Bonners Ferry High School.

There is no question as to the moral character of these two fine young men–their actions prove who they are! Please join us in voting for true North Idaho values — a strong work ethic, a sense of community, and, most importantly, men who live with honesty and integrity. Travis Stolley for Boundary County Sheriff and Jim Woodward for Idaho Senate.
