In 2006, they decided they wanted to raise their children in the same community that gave them so many cherished memories and moved back into the district. They now have four children; Grace, Collin, Jillian and Anna.

He has had the opportunity to read with Mapleton's kindergarten and first grade classes, help coach youth & jr. high football and elementary boys & girls basketball, & assist with the high school football weightlifting program.
Shawn was appointed to the Board in the summer of 2011 to fill a vacancy, but then ran for the same Board seat later that year. While there are challenges facing our district, Shawn is proud to be a life-long Mountie, and looks forward to serving our community in the years to come.
