Mott/Regent Superintendent Retires after 31 years

The Mott/Regent Public School District would like to thank Mr. Myron Schweitzer for his past 31 years of dedicated services to our school district and for the education of our community’s students. Effective June 30, 2015, Mr. Schweitzer will move on to pursue dreams beyond education.


On June 23, 2015 the Mott/Regent School Board presented Mr. Schweitzer with a plaque thanking him for his past service to the Mott/Regent School District. Myron Schweitzer was born and raised in Halliday, ND. He graduated from High School in 1980 and went on to attend UND/Williston and then onto NDSU to obtain his Ag Education degree.

Myron began his teaching career in Mott, ND in the fall of 1984. Initially Vo-Ag was a “male” class; however; Myron was vital in recruiting females into the Vo-Ag program. In 1988, Myron stepped in as Secondary Principal, a position he held until 2001 when Mott and Regent merged into one school district and Myron was hired as the School Superintendent.

Myron wore many hats while being employed with Mott/Regent, hats that included, but were not limited to FFA advisor, Assistant Football Coach, Activities Director and Drivers Education instructor.

According to several members within the Mott/Regent community, Myron and his wife Jodi were two people in the community who quietly volunteered for various kinds of work that others simple did not want to tackle. It was common practice that they both were up and working on such things around town before the sun even came up!

In April of 2015, Myron was interviewed by a member of the EIDO Connect and ended his interview with this comment, which seems appropriate to mention at this time. “Overall it was a wonderful ride and I will miss all of the students and the teachers in the school system, but now it’s time to enjoy farming again and take time to enjoy my children, and grand-children!”

The Mott/Regent School District would like to wish the best of luck to you and your family for many years to come!!

  1. My Dad was Dwain “Keith” Thunem Sr. He was Superintendent of Carson(1950 to 1959),Forman(Sargent Central 1959 to 1966), and Bowman (1966 to 1974). My best friend in Minnesota is Craig Stubbins. I believe his Dad (Roger) graduated Mott H.S. in the early 50’s …I also believe his Dad was Superintendent at Mott in late 40’s, early 50’s. Please help with facts. Thankyou much . D. Keith Thunem Jr., Bemidji, MN 56601…(218) 766-1958.
