The community of North Bend experienced historic flooding this past spring that left the high school building as one of the few dry places in the area to serve as the location for preparation, evacuation, and eventual recovery.  Leading, not just the school, but also the community through this natural disaster was a necessary role that Dr. Endorf stepped up to and all Superintendents must be ready for.
