John Stegman

Posted: October 8 - 2015

Now retired from a career in teaching in School District 8 and in the Distant Education program of Selkirk College, John feels that he has time to be involved with Rotary.

The organization became dear to John and wife Margaret, when their son David spent a year in Brazil as a Rotary Exchange Student. Needless to say, the Stegman family was involved with reciprocal hosting here in Nelson. Travel is in the Stegman’s blood. John taught in New Zealand for five years, where he met Margaret and had three children. The family returned to Nelson, where John had attended Notre Dame University. The Stegmans have lots of travel opportunity with adult children now living in London, Istanbul and Vancouver. Welcome aboard John.
