Missy grew up in Bismarck, N.D., and now lives south of Draper, S.D., on a ranch with her family. She likes to spend her time gardening, playing with her daughters and driving down I-90.
Missy has the opportunity to lead the admissions efforts and work with students from central South Dakota, including the city of Pierre, along with students from Mitchell High School and Mitchell Christian High School.
