HURON – Garret Bischoff of rural Huron has announced his candidacy for the Huron School District 2-2 Board of Education.

Bischoff, 31, is the membership director at South Dakota Farmers Union.

“The Huron school district needs to provide a quality education for all our kids while remaining fiscally responsible with taxpayer dollars,” he said in making his announcement.

“The district is facing some big fiscal challenges and some important decisions will need to be made in the near future,” he said. “We need leadership that will make the best use of the funds available to give our kids the best education possible. I want to help lead the school district in the right fiscal direction.”

At Farmers Union, Bischoff handles new member recruitment and membership activities for the statewide family farm organization.

He’s also involved in the organization’s government policy and rural development programs.

Prior to working at Farmers Union, Bischoff worked as vice president of operations for a specialty meat company in Oskaloosa, Iowa.

“I’m blessed to have support from my family and friends on my decision to run for the Huron Board of Education,” he said. “I want to make sure that every child in the school system has access to a high-quality education.”

A native of Huron, Bischoff graduated from Huron High School in 1999. He graduated from South Dakota State University with a bachelor’s degree in general studies. He serves on the board of the South Dakota Specialty Producers Association, as a board member of the Huron Community Foundation, was the chairman of Leadership Huron in 2010 and is currently a board member of District VII Farmers Union.

Bischoff and his wife, Jill, live on his family farm north of Huron. They have two children, Peyton, 7, and Cooper, 4.

“Our children are the future,” Bischoff said. “We need to make sure they have the tools and skills to be the best that they can be.

“I want to help shape the future of our great community,” he said. “I am grateful for everything this school district gave to me and my family. I want to serve the district to make sure our children continue to get a great education.”
