Dr. Steve Just announced via Facebook that he will seek election to the Morris Area School Board. Just said on his Facebook post that “after completing 8 years in post-secondary education, I understand the need for quality education in an environment that supports the growth and needs of every student.” Part of his focus, he said, would be Career and Technical Education, Early Childhood Education, and ensuring the learning environment is mentally, physically and emotionally safe.
Just resides in Morris with his wife Michelle and their 5 children, all of whom currently attend or have graduated from the district. He completed his undergraduate degree from Saint John’s University in Minnesota, and obtained a Master of Science in Biology and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Iowa State University.
