Paul Roe, Secretary
I am in my third year as a member of the White Pigeon Board of Education, currently serving as secretary. I also have previous board experience in a neighboring school district. A native of Sturgis, I received my B.B.A. degree (major in accounting/minor in law) at Western Michigan University. As a result of my work, my wife and I have been fortunate to live in Kalamazoo, the suburbs of Chicago, Houston and Los Angeles and have experienced their public education programs. We moved to the White Pigeon School District in 2000 but have owned property in the district for almost thirty years. My wife of 45 years is a retired high school teacher. My hobbies include sailing, golf and fishing.
