Aaron Schuster, President
I was born and raised in Highland where I graduated from Highland High School in 1997. I earned my bachelor’s degree from SIUC in automotive business management and am currently in pursuit of a master's degree in school administration. I have been fortunate enough to teach automotive technology for the past 15 years at both the high school and college level. I still enjoy automotive, from hot rods to the newest technology. I enjoy spending time with youth that have the same interests, and I am very much an advocate of teaching technical skills to our kids. In my spare time, I enjoy fishing of all types but am particularly fond of bass fishing and tournament fishing. I am married and have been blessed with two boys, with whom I spend the majority of my free time.
