My Community Involvement
Describe your commitment to your community through service-oriented activities such as volunteer work, civic responsibilities and other group activities.
I recently bought the domain name GrovePride.com for 10 years. No, I am not sure what I will do with it but I can assure you that it will ring of hometown pride. The potential for the name is unmistakable. I have lived in our town for over two decades and I have pride of my hometown. I have Grove Pride and I know others do too. My son Kabe is a proud Grove Boy Scout.
Boy Scouts has been a big part of my life since second grade. Scouting ventures
including Philmont and Canada BWCA taught me leadership that I never lost. In
1997 I earned the Eagle Scout Rank Award. Since my son has been old enough to
join scouts we have spent great father-son time together working towards his
Wolf Badge along with a dozen other boys. Many of those kids also play soccer.
For the past decade plus I have been involved with Youth Soccer from all levels from Player, Coach, Referee, Referee Assignor, and Club President. This year I was excited to take an assistant coach position with my son's U8 soccer team. In my free time, I do like to save time for some creative website building.
I have created over two dozen websites for Grove and neighboring businesses
and causes. Each one was completely custom made with custom HTML and
Graphics. Some of the websites I have created include: Grove Police Department, Grove Fire Department, 1st/279 OKARNG, Ridgerunners.net, mrhuggins.weebly.com , GHSClimate.weebly.com, KabesDad.com, MikeHuggins.net. Maintaining web content is a growing business that my students will have the ability to ‘fill the need’ as this industry continually grows.
Creating web sites is something that I enjoy teaching students about. Eventually, I hope to learn how to create more interactive web applications and share that
knowledge with my students. They are the reason I teach. I want my son to get
to grow up in a respected education community where teachers take pride in their
work and students respect and reflect it. I want my son to grow up with a strong sence of community pride.
I believe in community pride. Ou school colors are red, white, black and gray.
