Purchase your tickets and buy a video. The video is completed and it's marvelous. The video is full of surprises; Sister Nickey ‘KEBORT’ Walker did an amazing job. The video is different from the one 3 years ago, but just as impressive. For 10 bucks you get an amazing video memory. Contributors to this video were Nickey Kebort Walker, Scott Berlin, Howard Goodman, Mark Spiller, Larry Cooper, Joe Collins, Arnie Orton, Mike Hone, Therisa Stone Harrington, Scott Chesley, Paul Barker, Tom Kurz, Terry Waker, Daryl Westbroek, Chris Briggs, and Rick & Doretta Shumway. You will not want to miss this one. It is being professionally copied and will have a DVD case with the Van Wagenen family photo that we all came to know and love. The photo sat in President Van Wagenen's office. We all enjoyed it upon entering and leaving the mission. Scott Chesley sent us his video clips. They add an entirely new dimension to our video productions. Come join us at the reunion for the first screening of this new SDRCM video.

We have live entertainment thanks to very own Sister LeNora Bowman who is in charge of overseeing the Native American portion of the program. Elder Isi Lao and his lovely wife are having their performers share music and dance from the Polynesian Islands.

Dinner is being catered by the “Ohana Grill”. It's an all you want buffet, so come hungry. "Ohana Grill" specializes in bringing the taste of Aloha to Utah.

But most of all the evening will about reconnecting and visiting and telling stories to each other about our South Dakota Days.

I married the most amazing woman, Jodi and we have nine children.  I’m have been an elementary principal for 28 years and now I will beginning my first year as principal of Mountain High School, which is located in the Ely State Prison…..quite the paradigm shift. 
Between 1975 - 1977 I served in:
·         Fort Frances, Ontario, Canada 
·         Fort Yates, North Dakota 
·         Wagner, South Dakota
·         Cherry Creek, South Dakota
·         Rapid City, South Dakota. 
I remember leaving the mission field about the same time Elvis died. 
After Graduating from BYU in 1981, I returned to Red Scaffold/Cherry Creek and taught school.  The in 1982-1983 attended the Univ. of South Dakota in Vermillion for my Administration endorsement.  Returned to Fort Yates as a vice-principal.  After one winter in Ft. Yates (-45 below) my wife had me take a job in New Mexico.  I worked for the Gallup-McKinley County School District as principal for 10 years in Ramah, Thoreau and Twin Lakes.  Then another 10 years with Bureau of Indian Affairs schools.
In 2003 we moved to Ely, Nevada where I am now beginning my 9th year as a school administrator.  Like all of you our life revolves around family, church and work.
