Mr. Betteridge graduated from Lowry High School in 1976. He served a mission for The Church of Jesus of Christ of Latter-day Saints for two years and attended Brigham Young University for two years before transferring to the Albuquerque Technical Vocational Institution. He worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the Atomic Vapor Laser Isotope System program. He later worked on YAG (Yittrium Aluminum Garnet) Diode Pumped lasers before deciding to move to Winnemucca to begin his own business. Mr. Betteridge has two sons who have graduated from Lowry High School and a daughter who is currently attending. “Because of my background, my education path has been different, and I believe other students may feel the same way.” He continued, “I believe the goals that we have as a board are good and need constant work to make sure we are putting our kids first.” Mr. Betteridge’s goals during his tenure as a school district trustee are to help launch a comprehensive Career Technical Education (CTE) program for those students who will seek a technical rather than academic post-high school education. He also would like to see every student in Humboldt County graduate from high school. He wishes to ensure a safe school environment for students, as well as give students the chance to participate in sports, music and extra- curricular activities. “I appreciate all the employees of the Humboldt County school system; they are all working hard and try to do the best they can under difficult circumstances.”
