  • Therman Striplin

    Therman Striplin passed away on Thursday, August 11, after complications from a traumatic brain injury sustained earlier in the summer. He was laid to rest on Saturday, August 27.

    Therman was the principal/superintendent of Groner Elementary School/District from 1974 to 1997 when Unification brought it into the Hillsboro School District. In retirement, when he wasn't traveling to sunny locales, he was fostering his love of woodworking and becoming a luthier - building dozens of guitars, ukuleles, mandolins, and violins. 

    Therman was preceded in death by his wife of 52 years, Karen Striplin. He is survived by his three sons and their wives: Dan and Nancy, Jim and Laura, and Mark and Mindy; nine grandchildren (three of whom attended HSD); and two great grandchildren, with a third on the way. His son Mark, daughter-in-law Mindy, and granddaughter Chelsea have all followed in his footsteps as educators and currently work as teachers in the Hillsboro School District.
