Jeffrey Canadas - Board of Trustees PresidentTop of Page

Profile PictureMy name is Jeff Canadas. I am originally from Carmel Valley, CA. I left there at the age of 19 and joined the army where I served 12 years active duty and 10 years in the reserves as an engineer. I retired as a First Sergeant. I am employed at High Desert State Prison as Chief Engineer and I have worked there for the past 19 years. Educationally I have graduated and have degrees from Hartnell College, University of New York Regents, and Truckee Meadows College. I have a son attending Lassen Community College, a daughter who graduated from Shaffer School last year and is now attending Lassen High School, and my youngest daughter who is in 8th grade at Shaffer School this year. Therefore, I am personally vested in the schools in the Susanville area. My wish for Shaffer School is to have a school that parents and students are proud of. I want our school to be known for excellence in academics, social skills, and athletics. We have a GREAT group of students and I want them to have every opportunity to be able to succeed.
