Contacted Monday while salmon fishing near Riggins, Lee Jay Cook said he was very excited about his new responsibilities at his alma mater.
Cook, 32, a 2001 graduate of Carey High School, will replace his father Lee Cook as Carey High School athletic director starting in the 2015-16 school year. He is the fifth of six children of Lee and Sandy Cook.
“I’m so excited about the new job,” said Cook, whose new position was approved in May by the Blaine County School District board of trustees. “I’m a little worried trying to fill my dad’s shoes, but Carey has a lot of good things going for it and I will do my best to fulfill the responsibilities.”
