Dr. Jack Hay is a retired educator who spent 33 years as a teacher, coach, school administrator and district administrator. He was raised and did undergraduate work in Southern California and moved to Colorado in 1974. He completed his graduate work at the University of Colorado and worked in several Colorado school districts before retiring from the St. Vrain Valley School District in 2002.
Jack says, “I have a heart for children who need an extra ‘boost’ to help them be successful in school and in life.” Jack has served on the Board of Directors for Alternatives for Youth for over 20 years.
Jack considers himself a “freelance volunteer” and enjoys everything from clearing snow from neighbor’s sidewalks to helping refurbish local schools through “ShareFest.” Most recently, he has assumed the role of Director of the Pearl Mentoring Program, which serves children of single moms. “I have been blessed with the gift of time,” says Jack.
When Jack is not volunteering he enjoys golf, fishing, hunting and playing with his dog, Max. He and his lovely wife, Lois, enjoy traveling, camping and spending time with their adopted family and their grandchildren who live out of state.
