At the Town Council meeting on Monday, October 12, Rhonda Fagan was officially confirmed as a member of the Town Council Board! Rhonda has lived around Swayzee most of her life. She grew up west of Swayzee in the little town of Sims, and is the middle daughter to Warrenie and Bonnie Rogers. Rhonda graduated from Oak Hill High School in 1977 and went to Purdue University where she received her degree in elementary education. She moved back to the area after college, living on a farm near Amboy for ten years. In 1991, Rhonda moved back to Swayzee where she has resided since. She recently retired from Oak Hill Schools after teaching world history for 30+ years to sixth-graders at Swayzee Elementary. Rhoda spent her entire teaching career in the same classroom where she attended sixth grade. She is happy to have reached retirement age, but missing teaching and her students. Rhonda has two children, Rebekah and Justin Bricker, who have three grandchildren and one on the way. She also has three stepsons, Mark, Ryan, and Jarod Fagan, blessing her with five step-grandchildren. Her hobbies include making quilts (especially t-shirt quilts), reading (having served on the Swayzee Public Library Board for 18 years), and traveling (Greece and Italy are her favorite destinations). Rhonda said, "I am so excited to be able to serve our community." Please join us in welcoming Rhonda to the Town Council!
