Mary Schilling ran for the Sheridan County School District #1 Board of Trustees to advocate for the nearly 1,000 students across the district. As a mother of two girls, she is also personally invested in the district’s Tongue River Valley schools. Schilling grew up on a ranch with her seven siblings near Faith, S.D., attended Black Hills State University and earned her BS in Business Administration with an accounting emphasis. She worked in finance for 10 years until returning to college to study civil engineering at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. Schilling later entered the graduate program at the University of Utah and completed coursework for her Masters degree in water resource engineering. She and her husband Patrick moved to Sheridan in 1998, when she began working for an engineering firm specializing in land management and mine permitting. Schilling says raising her two girls is her most rewarding challenge yet.
