Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Leonard Orth


Following graduation, I have to admit I wasn’t very focused/disciplined. That doesn’t surprise any of you who knew me. I squeezed a four year degree into 7 years. When I hoped to get engaged in 1980, it seemed wise to gain some focus. So, after assessing which of my 7 declared majors I had the most credits in, I graduated in 1981 from Eastern Montana College with a degree in Special Education.
Met my wife of 33 years - Julie Wood of Willmar, MN - while working at Yellowstone Boys & Girls Ranch. We were married in 1981, and moved to Laurel, where she was teaching 2nd gr.
Worked at YBGR 1977 – 1988; taught SPED at YBGR ’81-’88.
Completed M.Ed. in School Admin. 1987.
Accepted a position as Director of Eastern Yellowstone Special Services Cooperative in Feb. ’88, and have served in that role for the past 27 years. There are 22 geographic/cooperative regions in MT. I oversee member school district SPED programs and hire related service personnel (i.e., SLPs, OTs, PTs, School Psychologists & Audiologists) to serve those member districts. Our Coop covers schools from Lockwood to Hysham and down to the Wyoming border. It has been a very rewarding job – great staff, sweet kids and varied challenges every day.
Julie and I waited almost 10 years to have kids. We have a son, Isaac ('90), and a daughter, Hannah ('94). When it was time to send the kids to school, my wife decided she did not want someone else to have the joy of teaching our kids – so she stayed home to home school them -- for 22 years. I am pleased to relate that they are not socially impaired (other than the damage I did as their father!). They are wonderful young adults. Isaac is married to a Chemical Engineer (MSU graduate), and they currently live in Midland, TX. He recently completed his degree in Biology & Chemistry, and they are both hoping to transfer back to Billings this fall in jobs with local refineries. Hannah is a beautiful young lady who enjoys anything involving speed &/or some danger. She recently completed her climb of Devils Tower in WY. She finished an AA degree, and is taking a year off of school to save money, so she and a friend can travel Europe next summer. Dad is guardedly pleased for her. Throughout her life, if we wanted to know where Hannah was, we only needed to quiet ourselves and listen for her singing. Julie has returned to teaching, where she is an enormous blessing – both academically and emotionally – to any kids lucky enough to learn under her.
My love for the Lord is still my foundation and guiding purpose in life. Taking that spiritual journey with my dear wife has been remarkable.
When my disquieting thoughts within me are many, your comfortings, delight my soul. Ps. 94:19
