Chimacum schools hires new athletic director

Posted

Carrie Beebe has been hired as the new athletic director for Chimacum High School.

“I’m just really excited to look at the program and see how it can grow,” Beebe said.

Beebe is a former sports standout from Port Townsend High School.

A member of the school’s Class of 1994, Beebe played for Port Townsend’s basketball team and lettered all four years, including as a freshman. She was also a four-year player in volleyball, and was on the track team for two years and also played golf for a season. She went to Washington state championship tournaments multiple times, both for PTHS’s basketball and volleyball teams.

After high school, she went to Bellevue Community College on a basketball and volleyball scholarship and later transferred to Washington State University on a full-ride scholarship for crew. 

After she graduated from college, Beebe worked for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula and was a top 25 National Trainer for Boys & Girls Clubs of America. 

In her time with the nonprofit, she served in multiple positions, including athletic director, education director, branch director, and interim executive director. 

She left Washington in 2007 for White City, Oregon.

After Beebe earned her second master’s degree in 2015 from the University of Phoenix, she taught language arts at White Mountain Middle School in White City.

She also coached volleyball and basketball. 

Beebe became athletic director in 2017, and in the following year, became the English teacher for Crater Lake Charter Academy and the athletic director for the high school and middle school, and also coached the high school volleyball team.

With both her son and daughter now graduated from high school, Beebe said she was looking forward to moving back to Washington.

Now, she’ll take time to assess the sports programs in Chimacum, and hopefully, increase the number of participants.

“I’m just excited. I was a Redskin and now I’m going to be a Cowboy,” she added, referring to PT’s former moniker that drew nationwide attention when it was changed in 2014. 

“So now I get to stick it the Redhawks,” Beebe said with a laugh.
