Canyons District’s Office of Civil Rights and Accommodations welcomes Jamal Willis as the District’s new hearing officer. The Canyons Board of Education ratified Willis’ appointment at its March 27, 2012 meeting.
Willis, now an academic counselor for Brigham Young University’s football, baseball, and men’s and women’s tennis programs, earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology at Brigham Young University. He also has earned his master’s degree in educational counseling from the University of Phoenix.
Willis, a former high school football coach and high school academic counselor, was a standout running back for the BYU Cougars and also played for the San Francisco 49ers.
Willis fills the position vacated by Justin Matagi, who became an Alta High Assistant Principal when Corrie Barrett, who previously was at Alta, was named Interim Principal of Oak Hollow Elementary.
