Q. What was your first job?
A. My first job was cleaning elevators and grain bins at Smart Brothers' Farms in Tebbetts. It was just a job after school back in high school, and I'd just do whatever they'd ask me. I was basically a laborer/cleaner. I picked sunflowers out of soybean fields for a while.
Q. Who most inspires you (living or dead)?
A. Probably my grandpa; he served in World War II in the Battle of the Bulge. That's pretty tough stuff, going through that.
Q. What have you done in life that was most fulfilling?
A. Raising a family. Just watching the kids growing up to being good, solid people (has been most fulfilling.) I mean, they're young but it's still cool to see.
Q. What is something that you are proud of that you have been recognized for?
A. I feel like I'm pretty true to myself. I'm pretty comfortable in my own skin. These are just things people will tell me from time to time.
Q. What profession, other than your own, would you like to attempt?
A. I'd like to be an archaeologist. I've just always been fascinated with the local archaeology around here with the different arrowheads and artifacts that we find here locally. To do that on a larger scale would be awesome.
Q. What profession would you not like to do?
A. I wouldn't want to sell insurance. Never done it, but I just know I wouldn't want to. (Laughs)
Q. What is something that nobody would be able to assume about you?
A. I watch a lot of Antiques Roadshows. (Laughs) Maybe some people would know that but I don't know.
Q. What is your favorite thing about Callaway County?
A. I like the core sense of values people have around here — I feel like I'm a part of that, and I can relate to that and see where they're coming from. How people treat each other around here is pretty good — well, obviously not in every case.
