Bob Roesler – Chair – Sherburn, MN
My wife Marlene and I live in the house we built forty eight years ago in Sherburn. We have three grown children and four grandsons. My professional career in education spanned 50 plus years, 18 as a high school instructor of agricultural education at Sherburn High School and 32 plus years as a management instructor at Minnesota West College.
I have been elected to serve as councilman and mayor of Sherburn for over two decades and where I currently serve as mayor. Member and chairman of the staff – parish committee at our church. I serve to mentor 3 to 5 high school students each year and currently mentor four first year high school instructors from across southwestern Minnesota. I also serve on numerous local and state advisory boards.
I have been awarded the outstanding agricultural educator in Minnesota award, Honorary FFA National award, Minnesota FFA Hall of Fame member, Borealis Award from the College of Food and Agricultural and Natural Resources and the Service Award from the University of Minnesota to name some.
We both enjoy flower, vegetable and fruit gardening. The garden plot layout is already complete for 2021. I enjoy making maple syrup from our own trees early each spring.
