I grew up in rural Neoga, IL with two sisters and two brothers (all younger) each. We all attended school in Neoga and graduated from High School in Neoga (I graduated from Neoga Jr.Sr. High School in June 1994).

(Students Against Driving Drunk), The Messenger (school newspaper), Prevention Club, Scholastic Bowl, Tomahawk (yearbook), and A.F.S.. I was awarded the Youth of the Year Award from St. Mary of the Assumption Catholic Church in Neoga, IL in June of 1994.
