WE WELCOME JOHN STEVIC
NEW MEMBER, RTWC BOARD OF DIRECTORS
John, born and raised in Marshallville, is a graduate of Smithville High School and Muskingum University. He and his wife Joanna have two daughters and two granddaughters. John taught math for 7 years at Greene Middle School in Smithville, worked as an upholsterer with his father, and was co-owner of Howmar Carpet in Marshallville for 33 years, retiring in 2016.
A member of the Marshallville Lions Club for 41 years and President of the Consistory Board at St. Michael's United Church of Christ in Marshallville, John also served 13 years on the Orrville Dunlap Hospital Board.
"Joanna and I have enjoyed biking for several years, mostly on the area trails," said John, "and I grew more interested as plans for the trail through Marshallville became a reality. I always appreciated the updates and information provided by Jenny Brooker while she served on the Rails-to-Trails Board and felt that it would be good to have a Marshallville area resident continue to represent the community as the trail is developed from Orrville to Clinton. The idea of a continuous bike trail from the Ohio River to Lake Erie has always been intriguing to me and will be a great recreational asset that area families can enjoy for many years to come."
