Amphitheater Governing Board Member Jeff Grant resigned.

Grant joined the board in 2002, but his service to the Amphitheater School District started before his election to the board.   He served on site-based governance councils at Copper Creek and Wilson K-8 Schools. He also was a member of the Amphi District Budget Advisory Committee.

Superintendent Patrick Nelson says, “The only agenda Jeff ever had was for the students and the staff in the district.” He went on to say, “If there is a motto he lives by, it is much can be accomplished if no one cares who gets the credit.”

 Jeff has a heart for children. He was a youth sports coach for more than two decades. He has been a coach and board member for AYSO Soccer and Little League Baseball. He also coached club soccer and youth basketball teams.

Amphitheater School Board President Susan Zibrat said, “I had the great fortune to know Jeff as a parent, a district supporter and as a colleague on the Board. His dedication to the students of our district has been unmatched.   Jeff is a quiet man who never sought the limelight for himself, but always wants it to shine on the achievements of children. We will miss his presence, and invaluable guidance on the board.”
