Jim McManus: A man of many skills

Everyone around campus knows Mr. McManus as the photo and video teacher but he actually didn’t start his career this way. He majored in industrial arts in college and started as a woodworking teacher. He owned a cabinet shop and worked as a teacher, but as woodworking jobs decreased in demand, he transitioned to photography and video. He is still in the woodworking community and does it as a side business on the weekends. Mr. McManus also was responsible for building the “Spartan Sword” introduced in the homecoming rally.
