Nancy Widdicombe In The Valley

Nancy E. Widdicombe
Harlowton High School

I have spent most of my life on the wind-swept plains of Central Montana, graduating from the same high school my mother and my five children did (Harlowton High School).  Those five children are the fifth generation to be raised in Wheatland County and we have all benefited from the Big Sky, the freedoms, and the generosities of this area.  Perhaps because of the length my family has resided in the Upper Musselshell Valley and the family stories I grew up with, I find this place to be full of places, people, and ideas to be investigated with the help of my high school classes. 
I am a graduate of MSU-Billings, receiving a B.S. in Secondary Education, with an English major, History minor and Native American Studies endorsement in 1993, after my youngest child graduated from High School.  I was fortunate to be hired in my hometown where my husband Sam and I continue to live.
My hobbies are bird watching, reading, traveling, and my twelve grandchildren. 
I served as the Vice President and President of MATELA (Montana Association of Teachers of English and Language Arts) in 2002 through 2004.  I was selected as Teacher of the Year by the Montana Historical Society in 2003, one of the greatest honors of my life.  That selection is closely related to my five years as a Montana Heritage Project teacher, a relationship which has enriched my life and that of my students.
