OAKHURST — Yosemite Unified School District and Yosemite High School are welcoming Todd Partin as the newest addition to the Badger family. Partin will serve as assistant principal at Yosemite High School, according to Dr.Stephanie Osowski, YHS principal.
An Indiana native, Partin moved to the area after retiring from the Air Force. His experience in the Air Force included serving as a Hebrew Linguist, flying numerous missions near the Mediterranean Sea and being stationed all around the world, including time in Afghanistan. He also served as an Acquisitions Program Manager overseeing staff to develop the Missile Warning and Nuclear Targeting systems for the United States military.
After retiring from the Air Force, Partin started his career as an educator for Fresno State’s ROTC program and then taught Aerospace Science at Clovis East High School.
Through the ROTC program, students under Partin’s leadership averaged more than 1,700 hours of community service.
“He led his students through dozens of athletic competitions, including basketball, soccer, volleyball and more. His students also competed in formal evaluations where the students received the Distinguished Unit Award with Merit, which is the highest award an Air Force JROTC program can receive,” said Dr. Osowski, who made the announcement about the addition of the new Badger administrator late Thursday (May 6).
Partin, who will start his new position in July, lives in Coarsegold and has two children, ages 15 and 13. He enjoys hiking, golfing and riding motorcycles.
