Biographical Information

Growing up in Carroll County, I have never forgotten my roots – the many great teachers I had in grade school and high school, the life skills I learned as a 10 year member of the Prairie Edge 4-H Club, the beauty of the rolling hills and the great river, and the upbringing from my parents, Earl and Delores. This is why I have returned out of retirement to support and help the West Carroll students, staff, parents, and community members. I believe in our towns and students; I believe that there is great potential in our schools; I believe that our school district will overcome the challenges that lie before us. I am committed to the students in our schools and committed to providing them the best learning environment possible.
