We have some new faces to share with everyone. Please welcome back Heather Bouse! She will be a part of our business and marketing team this next year. Here is her bio: I live in Vichy along with my husband, Cary, and our daughter, Brooklyn. For the past 3 years I have had the opportunity to stay at home with Brooklyn, along with assisting my husband in running our SimAngus cattle operation, Bouse Land & Cattle LLC, and our concrete and excavation business, Bouse Contracting LLC. I am excited about returning to the classroom for my 20th year of teaching as a high school business and marketing instructor. I earned a BSE in Mathematics from Lincoln University and began my career as a high school mathematics teacher in 1996. In the fall of 2010, I transitioned over to a vocational agriculture teacher and FFA advisor while continuing to teach mathematics part time. Just recently, I have obtained certification in high school marketing and look forward to using the real life experience gained as a business owner to enhance the educational experience of the students of St. James R-1 High School. In addition, I earned a Master of Education in Secondary Administration in 2007 and a Specialist of Education in Administration in 2011, both from William Woods University. As a family we are active members of the St. James FFA Alumni & Supporters group and the Royal 4-H Club where Brooklyn is a Clover Kid and I am the Swine project leader. In addition to Brooklyn, who is 6 years old and entering the 1st grade, we are fortunate to have all of our adult children close by and enjoy spending time with them as our family grows. The majority of our free time is spent outdoors on the farm, but throughout the summer we enjoy showing livestock and having family time around the pool.
We are excited to welcome our new activities director Chad Shockley to the team!
