Steve Gardner to speak at NBHS Alumni Event
Posting Date: 06/10/2014
Alumni Guest Speaker

Alumni Guest Speaker

NB Grad and former resident Steve Gardner, Class of 1974, will be the guest speaker at the Alumni dinner in July.

The North Baltimore High School Alumni Association Committee had the opportunity to visit and plan with Steve when he made a late winter visit to NB.

Late -winter planning meeting(Don and Tami Thomas, JP Miklovic, Jill Guy, Steve Gardner) for a FUN Summer evening

Here's a little background on Steve, who previously spoke at the dinner in 2004:

My name is Steve Gardner and I graduated from North Baltimore HS in 1974. I graduated from Miami University in 1978 and have made my home in Shelby County Indiana since 1981.

This spring, I completed my thirteenth year teaching computer repair and networking at Blue River Career Center in Shelbyville Indiana. I also teach a Videography and 3D animation class that is in its third year for Junior and Senior HS students.

I will be celebrating my thirtieth year of marriage to Renee this fall and have one daughter (Stephanie) who is starting her finance career in Columbus Indiana (just down the road from Shelbyville).

Involved in volunteerism, I have held positions on the county Chamber of Commerce and United Fund (SCUFFY) as well as many service organizations such as the local Rotary Club.
My interests and hobbies include all forms of sports both spectator and participation. I have an eBay as well as
an Amazon store where I sell primarily books but also all sorts of merchandise. I have a YouTube channel where I make all sorts of videos for organizations in my community and for fun. I love photography and have been a hobbyist for 38 years. I am an avid SCUBA Diver and have been fortunate to travel the world to experience the wonders beneath the surface of this beautiful planet.

Living on a farm, I grow my own food and spend each summer canning a wide variety of my own sauce’s which Renee and I have perfected where people request our foods. I contracted and built my own home in 2006. I enjoy cutting firewood for the winter. I owned a computer store for ten years, help start one of the first internet companies in the state of Indiana in the early 1990’s and once owned a restaurant.

I grow and plant rhubarb every year on our farm and have a personal goal of becoming the “RHUBARB KING OF INDIANA” someday.

I have strong attachments to family and community and I love the place I call home…..NORTH BALTIMORE. I am excited to again speak at the alumni dinner in July 2014 where I was fortunate to speak in 2004. I am looking forward to seeing my classmates for our 40th reunion and “telling lies” with old friends once again.
