10 things you don’t know about me… Jeff Isenhower

Every week we talk to an area resident and ask them to give us 10 interesting facts about themselves. This week we talked to Prairieview-Ogden South Princpal Jeff Isenhower.

I have an amazingly understanding wife Caryn.

Graduated with my first degree from EIU at the age of 30 (I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life right after high school).

I now have three degrees.

My favorite summer job was teaching water skiing on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire with a school teacher from Australia.

I dearly value family time (which includes my dog Bo)

I grew up in rural Mahomet (was a half a mile away from being a Fisher Bunny)

My mothers side of the family is from Oakwood and the family farm is still there

My father graduated from Armstrong and grew up in Collison

I am an Illini fan and a Cubs fan.

My biggest weakness is ice cream.
