JANE HUSTON, SECRETARY

Having the opportunity to make a difference in children’s lives has always been a large part of my focus.  In 1971 I arrived in Mount Shasta with my husband, Ray, to begin my first teaching job and start our family.  Ray and I are proud parents of two adult sons, Thad and Drew, and three grandchildren.

 

Throughout my 30 year career,  I was a classroom teacher in several grades, substitute-taught K-8, and acted as Health Mentor for Mount Shasta Union School District. Being an educator helped me realize that when children are not in school there is a need to offer quality programming, led by caring adults.  Another major factor that drew me to serve on the Boys & Girls Club of the Siskiyous’ Board of Directors was that in my teens, I too, had the opportunity to develop and flourish as a result of mentoring from significant adults through a stimulating youth program. I know personally how that support gave me encouragement and direction that shaped who I am today.
