    Personal Bio

    I was born in Springfield, MO and grew up in Rogersville, MO. I attended Logan-Rogersville High School and graduated in 1994. In 2002 I moved to Oshawa, Ontario Canada where I married my husband David. We have 3 children, Kaitlyn, Noah and Grace. We lived in Canada for nearly 15 years during which time I was involved in many non-profit organizations. Some highlights include:

    2007-2010 - Ontario Federation of 4Wheel Drive Recreationists Board of Directors. Assisted in set-up of the largest offroad events in Ontario, Canada. In charge of securing sponsors, donations and prizes for event, totaling $25,000 each year.

    2007-2010 - President of FJ Cruisers Ontario offroad club.

    2013-2016 - Oshawa Blue Knights Lacrosse Association Board of Directors. Served as director, assisted in scheduling, planning floor times, setting tournaments, scheduling referees, assisted in the Braver than Brave home tournament.

    2014-2016 - Oshawa Blue Knights Lacrosse Association Assistant Registrar. Assisted the Registrar with registering approximately 500 players with the Ontario Minor Lacrosse Association. Ensured that each participant was correctly registered, proper forms were submitted and detailed records were kept.

    2015-2016 - Manager of Oshawa Blue Knights Minor/Major Peewee Rep. Lacrosse Teams.

    2015-2016 - Co-Manager of Oshawa Minor Generals Peewee AA Hockey Team. Scheduling, organization, planning and fundraising.

    We returned to Missouri in November 2016 and reside in Rogersville, MO. I am currently a paraprofessional with Logan-Rogersville High School. Noah currently plays on the Bantam A hockey team and I am fulfilling the manager position for that team. I have been attending SYHA Board meetings in order to familiarize myself with the organization and how things are run. I have been working closely with the current registrar who has shown me the requirements of the position, including working with Missouri Hockey and USA Hockey. She has also explained the rules and regulations that the registrar system operates under. I feel that I have the needed experience and knowledge to make a smooth transition to the registrar position.

     

     

     

    Steve Wynn Bio

     

     

    Employment:

    Mediacom, LLC (2018 – present)

    Producer/Director

    Work History:

    Mediacom is the main television resource for area high schools and small colleges to get exposure of their teams in sports such as football, basketball, volleyball, wrestling, soccer, baseball and softball. My job is to produce and direct these broadcast that reaches all our Mediacom subscribers, both locally and through our national network system. Prior to Mediacom I was employed at Missouri State University for over 28 years. During that time my main responsibilities are as a producer, director, editor, videographer and writer for the many different local shows for our station. Also, my job responsibilities included creating new shows designed around building cultural competence and awareness for the university and our viewing audience.

    SYHA:

    Our family began participating in SYHA in 2016. In that first year I was asked to serve on the Board as Division Coordinator and be a head coach. I coached for two seasons (2016-17 Squirts B and 2017-18 PeeWee A2) and continued serving on the Board. This past season I stepped up to serve as Vice President on an interim basis as the association was making changes from out prior VP who could no longer serve in that role due to work commitments. During this season as VP I worked hard with the Board and coaches to make SYHA a more transparent and trusted group. With the help of other Board members we have started to make a lot of momentum in building a better working relationship with the JVIP staff while trying to help grow youth hockey.

    Conclusion:

    I realize that this position is not an easy job, serving a membership of over 100 families that have many different interest and expectations. I believe I can continue to help SYHA grow and strengthen as a whole while giving our young players an opportunity to compete at a very high level. Thank you for considering me for a position of VP. I look forward to continuing to help our young men and women grow as individuals while making the game fun.
