A Goddard school principal who was killed in a school shooting is being honored by the Goddard Education Foundation.

Jim McGee has been named to the Goddard USD 265 2019 class of distinguished alumni and staff.

McGee was principal of Goddard Junior High when he was shot by a student in January 1985. Three others were wounded. It remains the only fatal school shooting in Kansas history.  

McGee and the other honorees will be recognized at events later this month.
