Mr. Sargeant Truesdell

Mr. Truesdell is a product of the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District. He attended five different KPBSD school on his way to graduating from Skyview High School in 1994. He began his teaching career in 1998 as a social studies and physical education teacher at Soldotna Middle School. In his 9 years of teaching at SMS he taught several different content areas, was the athletic director, and coached multiple middle school and High School activities. Mr. Truesdell was selected as the assistant principal at Soldotna Middle School in 2007 and became the school principal in 2011. In 2015, Mr. Truesdell was part of the Soldotna area reconfiguration team that moved the Soldotna Middle School students and staff to the Skyview High School campus, where he stayed on as principal for 6 more years.  In the spring of 2021, after 23 years at the Middle School level, Mr. Truesdell was selected to become the principal at Soldotna High School.  When asked about the move from the Middle School to High School, Mr. Truesdell says “I consider it a privilege and an honor to be the principal at SOHI.  I will do my best to make sure that every student feels physically and emotionally safe, is able to build strong relationships, and finds relevance to their future here at SOHI.”
