2014 CHS Outstanding Ex Jamie Olmstead
CHS 2014 Outstanding Ex

Jamey Olmstead, a 1987 graduate of Canutillo High School and a permanent fixture in virtually all athletic events in the District, has been selected as the 2014 Outstanding Ex for the Canutillo High School homecoming festivities.

Olmstead is a detention officer for the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and a Captain in the West Valley Volunteer Fire Department. But perhaps he is most well known to the Canutillo Independent School District community as the unofficial photographer of the CHS Eagles. 

“Jamey is a key supporter of our kids and we are so thrilled to be able to recognize him with what is the biggest honor for a former student of Canutillo High School,” said Principal Dino Coronado. “As someone who comes out and provides our students with snapshots of their performances, I can honestly say that he has a deep impact on the lives of a large portion of our student body.” 

Olmstead will be recognized during the homecoming parade, homecoming pep rally and the homecoming game. He will join dozens of other Canutillo High School alumni – including a former congressman, lawyers, doctors, judges, doctors, military personnel and educators – who have had the Outstanding Ex honor bestowed upon them. 

Canutillo Homecoming is Friday, September 26. The Eagles will take on the El Paso High School Tigers at 7 p.m. on the Orange & Blue Field of Coach Julius & Irene Lowenberg Eagles Stadium at Canutillo High School. 

Olmstead is no stranger to the Canutillo sports world. As a student at CHS, he was valued member of the football team, for which he lettered even as a freshman playing in the varsity squad. He also had successful seasons with the basketball and track teams. In 1987 he was named Canutillo’s Student Athlete of the Year. 

Since graduation he has continued his support of student athletes by establishing Canutillo Eagles Sports Photos, a social media site where thousands of photos are uploaded for students, friends and families to enjoy free of charge. 

Olmstead is a devoted husband and father of three Canutillo High School graduates and a current student at CHS. He has been named the Detention Officer of the Year by the El Paso Sheriff’s Office and is a member of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Officers Association and the State Firemen’s and Fire Marshal’s Association of Texas.
