Harold Lloyd (“Hal”) Boring, Ed.D., passed away at the age of 87 on July 27, 2021 in Riverside. Boring was a charter member of ACSA when it was created in 1971, and was in paid or volunteer roles in service to the association until his retirement from all things ACSA in December 2016. His ACSA contributions over the years have included statewide service as a Field Service Representative, as well as Office Operations Manager for the ACSA Ontario office. He was president of Region 12 in 1984-85, and has served in a number of ACSA committees over the years. Boring is credited with having formed a retired and a student-associate charter in his region. His retirement service has also included independent consulting work for area school districts. Boring’s “day jobs” prior to retirement were as a teacher, site administrator, district consultant, director, and assistant superintendent positions in the San Bernardino City USD and Riverside City USD. His leadership roles in general community service have been extensive.
Hal was issued a personal proclamation upon his retirement from the San Bernardino City USD by then-superintendent E. Neal Roberts wishing him the very best in retirement and thanking him for his years of service. He was selected by Region 12 as its Retired Administrator of the Year for 2015 in recognition of his years of service to the educational community and ACSA. On a personal note, he is said to have been a master poker player and an avid golfer. His helpfulness to administrators in Riverside and San Bernardino counties, and institutional knowledge of ACSA, will be sorely missed. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy for the Boring family may be shared at Information on services is also listed online.
