Peter Richardson – CHAIRMAN

Peter is married to Arlana and they have three grown children. Peter teaches sixth grade at Aldrich Middle School in Beloit.

His favorite passage from the Bible is from Rev.4 :6-11 because it gives us a glimpse of what Heaven is like and how it would feel to be in the presence of God.
