Mr. Carpine has been at RCS since its inception. He was born and raised in Canon City, Colorado. He is the son of a coal miner and understands the necessity and value of hard work. He attended the University of Northern Colorado and played golf for them for four years. He graduated from UNC in 1984 with a BA in marketing and a minor in finance. He went directly into banking and quickly worked his way up to banking administration.
He started volunteering his time in 1999 for RCS because he wanted a better education for his children and became an employee in October of 2001. He has since built a discipline program and many other programs for RCS. He particularly enjoys the discipline aspect of his job, which is evidenced by treating all of the students with the same love and standards as he does his own children. In addition to discipline, Mr. Carpine is responsible for all standardized testing, facilities, and ancillary staff.
Outside of Ridgeview, Mr. Carpine is an avid hunter and golfer. He enjoys spending time in the mountains, golfing, but most of all spending time with his children and grandchildren. Mr. Carpine was widowed in August of 2015.
