• Rusty Swift, Treasurer
    Rusty Swift
    Elected: April 2010
    2nd Term - Expires: April 2019

    Rusty Swift lives in our community with his wife, Mary Ann who serves as a nurse in our school district. Both are lifetime Republic residents who attended Republic School District for their entire public school tenure. As parents of a blended family, all three of their children are also Republic graduates.


    After graduating from RHS, Mr. Swift attended Southwest Missouri State University (MSU) where he obtained a degree in Math with a minor in Physics. His education led him to his professional career in which most of it was spent as a software developer for IBM Mainframe Environment.


    In additional to serving on the board of education, Mr. Swift is a volunteer for People Helping People and also donates his time for various school district events (Senior Project Night, Speech and Debate, etc.) and for his church. He expresses that his reasoning for wanting to be a part of the board of education is because he has a great sense of pride for our community, and from that comes passion to see that the children in our community have the best possible opportunities for learning both through academics and activities.
