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.
