Joplin Tornado update

Joplin High School gets a new temporary name via duct tape

Just a quick note… I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted.  As you can imagine, it’s been crazy around here since the tornado destroyed a quarter of our town on May 22.  For any of you wondering… Elton, Dusty, Matt, and I (and our families) are fine.  Dusty’s house has some significant damage to it, but other than that we were all very fortunate.  Matt was even working in the Wal-Mart that was destroyed as it was hit.  We’re glad to have him still with us! As you can see above, the high school I teach at was pretty much demolished.  Next school year is going to be interesting, to say the least.

It’s going to be a long, long road of recovery for our city, but the outpouring of support from people near and far has already been overwhelming.  If any of you happen to want to help out, we would direct you to Rebuild Joplin, a central hub for coordinating relief efforts here.

Thanks for the concern we have already heard from many of you!
