The Southwest Region TEPS (Teacher Education and Professional Standards) dinner and inservice will be held April 12, 2021. Location will be the Glendalough Conference Center, DoubleTree Hotel, 2431 N. Glenstone, Springfield. Registration will begin at 4:30pm. Dinner and program will begin at 6:00pm.
Our speaker is the Ozarks’ very own Sara Forhetz! Sara Forhetz is a familiar face to many of you -- she became well known in the Ozarks.. as a reporter and anchor for KY3 News. She's also a wife and a mother of three kids -- two girls and a boy -- ages 11, 9 and 7. They keep her pretty busy, but she also squeezes in exercise. She loves to swim, bike & run -- in that order -- and does so by competing in triathlons. She's even raced in a couple of 70.3 mile long Ironman triathlons.
During her 16 year television news career, Sara won an Emmy for a report on a mission trip to Haiti.. and has been named Best Female Television Personality several times by 417 Magazine. She & her husband, former news anchor Ethan Forhetz, have also been recognized as a "power couple" by different publications.
But most of all, Sara is a fervent follower of Jesus Christ. She speaks at conferences and to groups all around Southwest Missouri and Northern Arkansas, sharing her heart for evangelism. She has a passion for sharing the Gospel with people and urging Christians to be bold in our faith... because our friends, family, coworkers and acquaintances desperately NEED us to be bold.
She and her husband recently left their long-time careers to go to work for Springfield based charity Convoy of Hope. Their work will take them around the world helping those in need.”
