    meet Eve

    Eve and her family moved to Custer in 2005, which was a homecoming for her as a CHS graduate. After high school, she earned her bachelor's degree from Augustana College in special education and elementary education and a master's degree in Educational Leadership from SMSU. Eve and her husband Casey have had careers that led them to Florida, Eastern SD, Germany, and Minnesota. Eve is currently serving as the Special Education Assistant Director. On her down time, you can often find her enjoying ATV rides on the trails of the beautiful Black Hills or out enjoying her small flock of chickens. The pride of Eve's life are her children, Graysen & Siri.
