Dr. Amber Englund
I have lived in Oroville for the past 21 years. I came to Oroville with my husband in 1998 for an internship and we decided to call this community home. Together we own our own business, Englund Chiropractic Office, and have worked to serve this community through health and wellness. We are raising three beautiful children. Our oldest child graduated from Las Plumas last year and our middle child is currently enrolled there. I am a strong supporter of youth and their education in our community. I have worked to support them through volunteer work in local schools and coaching local youth soccer and basketball teams. I am a member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, where I enjoy teaching Sunday school. I have also served for many years as a church board member and financial officer. I received my BS at UC Davis in Biological Sciences and went on to receive my Doctor of Chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose. My goal as a board member is to support personal and academic success for all of the students in our community, and to ensure they have the keys to success for their future.
Mr. Ray Sehorn
I was first elected to the OUHSD Board of Trustees in 2016 and have made my home in Oroville since 1979. I received my BA and MA degrees from Chico State College and retired in 2000 after a 36-year career in public education, 31 of those as a teacher/administrator in the Oroville Elementary School District. From the time I was a teenager, I have been devoted to and worked with kids of all ages.
I have been active as a volunteer in the OUHSD since 1977 when I began doing public address announcing for OHS and LPHS track and field meets. After many years, I continue to enjoy doing this. I also announced home football games for OHS, LPHS, and Butte College for over 20 years. I love sports! Since 2009, I have been a member of the OUHSD Hall of Fame Committee, serving as its chairman since 2010, and as emcee of the Top 10 Scholastic Awards Event since 2003.
I am active in our community and served on the State Theatre Advisory committee, the City of Oroville Park Commission and am on the leadership team of the local retired teachers association. Other memberships include the Butte, Colusi County, and South Oroville African American Historical Societies, Saint Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church, and an active member and past president of the Fellows Club of Oroville.
For 38 years I was happily married to Oroville native and OHS alumna, the late Charlene Tuhey. I love Oroville and its surrounding beauty, and am dedicated to doing everything I can to ensure that EVERY OUHSD STUDENT receives the optimum education and training for success in the life he/she chooses.
Mrs. Bonnie King
I graduated from Oroville High School as did my four children; two from Las Plumas and two from Oroville. I have lived in Oroville 90% of my life except for college and working for the San Ramon Valley Unified School District as a reading and speech and language therapist.
My goal as a trustee is to support the Superintendent in achieving academic success for all students and promoting a happy, safe, high school experience for all.
Mr. Tyler Smith
I grew up in Northern California and am the eldest of six children. My family spent most weekends, school vacations and summer months at my grandparent’s home in Oroville, running around and playing with our cousins. As a young married couple, my wife and I were youth leaders in our church and grew to understand the importance of a healthy education on young lives. After ten strong years of marriage, and happier than ever, we are very active in the Gracepoint Church as well as local Grange organizations. I pledge to do everything I can to ensure that the students in our schools receive the best education available and that we foster every opportunity for them to grow and develop into productive members of society.
