Mr. Cris Turner

I continue to be honored and excited to be the principal of BLHS, the World’s Greatest High School!   BLHS has outstanding students and is blessed to have such supportive parents and community.  It is my focus to educate the whole child – academically, socially, and emotionally; partnering with all stakeholders to help BLHS be the premiere high school in the state of Washington!  This starts with the relationships we develop with you and your students.  I believe in our school’s Values for Success – POWER – Perseverance, Ownership, Work-ethic, Engagement, & Respect and when these values are taught and exhibited, success will follow.  It is my job to help guide the staff in supporting each and every student learn essential content and skills to earn a diploma and become career and college ready.  We (educators) have a moral imperative to ensure that every student is successful. 

I am entering my 25th year as an educator and my eighth year here at BLHS.  I have a strong background in improving classroom instruction, creating support systems to help students achieve, and ensuring no student falls through the cracks.  I LOVE the Seahawks, spending time with my family and taking every opportunity I have to hit the road on my Harley. 

I am very family oriented and am the proud father of three, all adults now.  As a father, I want only the best for my children and seek that every day.  I believe that every parent feels the same way.  This is a thought that is always on my mind and helps to guide the decisions I make that impact your students.  My door is always open.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have a concern about your student(s).  I am looking forward to serving this community!

Hello BLHS families! I’m so excited to be serving you as this year’s 11th and 12th grade administer. My journey in education started in the south end of Seattle at Rainier Beach High School where I taught Health to 9th-12th graders and coached baseball. After teaching health, I was offered the opportunity to take a position as an Academic Intervention Specialist within the building. The work was challenging but also very rewarding. I live with my girlfriend and her son in Burien but hope to move to Bonney Lake in the future.

This year will be my 3rd year at BLHS. The students, parents, and staff have made me feel so welcomed in my first 2 year. I will oversee history, science, physical education, and the health department. They are some of the most engaging and motivated teachers I have had the opportunity to work with. My main goal is to partner with families and this great community to help ensure all BLHS students leave with the skills necessary to be successful in whatever path they choose. I’m looking forward to being a member of this great community and I can’t wait to get to work.

The 2021-2022 school year will be my third year as a member of the BLHS administrative team,  but my 13th year in the Sumner-Bonney Lake School District. Prior to becoming a Panther, I served our community for six years as the assistant principal at Mountain View Middle School.  I then had the honor to serve all fourteen schools in our district as the Director of Student Services between 2016-2019.  Before coming to the Sumner-Bonney Lake School District in 2010, I taught English, Reading Intervention, and Leadership in the Tahoma School District.

Prior to working in education, I worked as a social worker for at-risk youth and their families.  After 10 years of working with a broad range of children and young adults in that capacity, it became very clear to me that having a good education is the greatest equalizer for our kids and that working in education would allow me to have a bigger impact.  That was in 2001, when I went back to school to become a teacher.

Not only am I an employee of the district, I am the parent of two SBLSD students.  My son, Matthew, graduated in 2020.  My daughter is currently a ninth grader here at Bonney Lake High School.   Additionally, my husband is in his 30th year of education - all of which have been in the SBLSD.

My office is in Student Services and my door is always open!

This school year will be my 16th year in education but my first year at BLHS.  I have lived in the Bonney Lake Community for 10 years with my family and have a Kindergartener who attends in this district.   

I am excited to be joining this community and serving as the 10th grade administrator.  Prior to becoming a panther I was a middle school assistant principal in the Federal Way School District.  Before transitioning into administration, I taught math, science and social studies at the middle school level.  I also was involved in coaching gymnastics and co-led a Saturday math program for young men.  

I am excited to make the transition closer to home and support students and families in my home community.  Please know I am here to serve, contact me anytime.

Mr. Aaron Radford

The 2021-22 school year marks my 5th year at Bonney Lake High School. I graduated from Sumner High in 1993 and spent my college days at Western Washington University. Prior to joining the Bonney Lake Panther team, I served the Kent School District for 18 years.

Early in my career I was a Dean of Students and math teacher at the middle school level. I then spent 14 years at Kentwood High, where I continued to teach math and was the Head Girls and Boys Soccer Coach. In my 25 seasons as a head coach, I’ve come to appreciate the hard work and dedication coaches and students have while participating in athletics and activities, as well as in the classroom. My goal for the Bonney Lake High School Athletic Department is to focus on developing athletes with character and providing student athletes with opportunities to grow and learn about themselves through their participation in sports.

I am married and have 2 girls. My wife, Tara, has supported all my endeavors and you can expect to see her at many Panther events. My oldest daughter is a 2021 BLHS graduate while my youngest daughter is a freshman here at Bonney Lake.
