Garny Gaffey

Biography My wife Joleen and I have been a part of the Pine River & Backus communities since 1981. We found this to be a wonderful environment to raise our 4 sons , all of whom spent time in the Backus School, and 3, who graduated from PR/B, after the consolidation. Our oldest son was one of the Last of the Wolverines. The class of 1990.

We've been members of 1st Lutheran Church in Pine River all this time, and have been involved with the schools in some form or another for the duration. I have served as a board member for the schools for over 15 years and look forward to any time I'm allowed to serve in that capacity.

School Board Committees - Garny is a member of the following committees:

  • Catch the Pride
  • Combined Leadership Team
  • Facility/Health & Safety
  • Negotiations, Non-certified
  • Paul Bunyan Education Cooperative Board

My Message - I've always sought to serve as an advocate for the students of our district. Other than that of a teacher, I could think of no higher calling in that regard.
