I’m an Eddyville native and a graduate of S-E-M High School. I went on to attend Chadron State College and then graduated with a B.S. in Agricultural Sciences from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln with a major in Diversified Agriculture and a minor in Agronomy. Following graduation I worked for chemical, fertilizer and seed companies. In addition I am a graduate of the Nebraska Law Enforcement Training Center and I spent about five years as a police officer. I have been teaching at Litchfield the past two years as part of the Transitional Certification program at the University of Nebraska at Kearney and will complete that program this spring. I currently live in Broken Bow and I have two teenage sons that attend school there. In my free time I enjoy watching sports and during the warm months I spend much of my time in the outdoors.
