Mr. Cal David Bateman was hired as Business Manager of Boundary County School District #101 on February 1, 2017 and he has not come up for a breath yet! Cal was a member of the Bonners Ferry High School graduating class of 1991. After graduation he spent 19 years working in California, Utah and Texas before returning to “God’s County.” Cal has been heard to say, “Bonners Ferry is the best place to live, ever!” He is forever grateful to have moved back to Northern Idaho.
In 1998, he married extremely well to Melissa Norwood. Since this time they have kept busy creating and raising six other great people: Brady, Seth, Bo, Trey, Callie and Dax.
When Cal and his family first moved back to Bonners Ferry, he took a job in the BCSD Transportation Department, driving a daily route and extra-curricular trips. Cal held this position all the while, as he worked on an Accounting Degree at Western Governor’s University.
Cal and Melissa are active in the community socially and spiritually, as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Their children participate in athletics, leadership classes and on-stage in drama productions—all of the children are strong students and standouts in their own right!
We are very fortunate to have Cal working for the Boundary County School District. He is very dedicated to the school program and the community. He works long hours and does more than he needs to do! To describe Cal in a word—honest comes to mind, but so does industrious, forthright, fun, respectful and friend! I have to say, recommending him for the Business Manager position was the best decision I have made to date!
