Spring Valley native honored by Amboy High

James Braida
James Braida

Retired Amboy High School Principal James Braida was honored recently when the high school auditorium was named in his honor.

About 100 former students, friends, family and community members gathered in the Amboy High School mall to celebrate with Braida as the sign bearing his name was unveiled outside of the auditorium entrance.

Jim served as principal of AHS for 25 years from 1968 to 1993 and as a teacher for the previous eight years.

Jim is a Spring Valley native, graduating in the Hall High School class of 1951.

He and his family were humbled but proud to receive this great honor.

Just wanted some of his Spring Valley family and friends to know of this.

Thank you.

Marilyn Braida
