On September 22, 2017 at 2 p.m. , in the North Salem Library, Jim Mudd will be inducted into North Salem’s Hall of Fame, Distinguished Lifetime Award. He will be inducted with 3 other North grads in the categories of Service, Athletics, and Achievement. All who can attend the induction ceremony are invited.
Jim readily admits that there was nothing remarkable about his high school days that would have even hinted at his upcoming award. He also readily admits that it was the marriage to his wife, Lynn, that changed everything. For those of you who do not know or cannot comprehend what possible events in his life led this very popular high school student to the level of recognition he is about to receive, please read the attached testimonials. For those of you in Masonite, the Neah Kah Nie School District, and Northern Tillamook County , who received the fruits of his endeavor, you probably wonder why Jim was not recognized sooner……..but likewise please read the attached testimonials.
