Miriam is a native of northwest Arkansas. She moved to Rogers in1978 to begin her teaching career. Retiring after 30 years with Rogers Public Schools, she and her husband, Steve, enjoy gardening–he grows vegetables, while she plants flowers. The couple spends time together at the cabin they built on their “hunting land” in the backwoods near Eureka Springs. They have a son, Chad, and a daughter, Micah and are so thankful that they and their families live nearby. Steve and Miriam have attended Temple Baptist Church since 1994.
