Steve Mullet

The Tukwila School Board will hold a special tribute honoring Director Steve Mullet during public comment time of its board meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 8. District staff and community members are invited to share any comments about Mullet, who died July 23 after suffering a heart attack.

Mullet was School Board president at the time of his death and had been a Tukwila city councilman and mayor.

The School Board meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the Board Room of the Tukwila School District Administration Building, 4640 S. 144th St.

The tribute to Mullet will be videotaped for his family because they will not be at the meeting. Anyone who is unable to attend the tribute but would like to share their thoughts, can send their comments to Deborah Kohr at kohrd@tukwila.wednet.edu, and they will be given to the family.
