It is a privilege and honor to serve as Superintendent of the Yankton School District. I have served as Yankton High School Principal, Yankton Middle School Principal, Yankton Middle School Assistant Principal, and taught and coached at Webster Elementary School and Yankton Middle School. Prior to coming to Yankton, I taught and coached at Colome, SD and Torrington, WY. I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree from Northern State University and my Master’s Degree, Specialist Degree, and Doctorate from the University of South Dakota. I am also proud to have graduated from Winner High School.
I have been married for 33 years to my wife Marjorie, who is a math teacher at Yankton High School. My wife and I are very happy to have raised our three adult children in Yankton and who all attended the Yankton School District. Our children could not have had a better PK-12 education than the YSD. We are blessed to have five granddaughters, two grandsons and another granddaughter coming in February! We are grateful to this community and the YSD for the tremendous impact both have had in our lives.
We are Buck and Gazelle fans, as well as Nebraska Husker and Minnesota Viking fans. Our family enjoys taking vacations together, hunting, and spending time at my wife’s family farm north of Winner. One of our favorite foods is Prime Rib at Christmas!
