I grew up in Zambia and Kenya, Africa as a member of a missionary family. I was homeschooled for most of my elementary education and spent my high school years at a Boarding School in Kenya. I returned to the US to begin college at UW-Oshkosh, met my wife, and have enjoyed making Oshkosh our home since then.
I earned a B.S. in Management Information Systems at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh; and a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) in 2015. I am currently a Business Analyst at Oshkosh Corporation.
My wonderful wife Alyssa and I, married since 2010, have three children, Levi (May 2015), Evelyn (July 2017), and Lillian (2020). Alyssa was the 4K teacher at VCS 2012-15, she now stays home to raise our children. We are members of River Valley Church where I have served as Treasurer, Life Group and Worship Team Leader.
As President of the Board of Directors at VCS, I bring a unique worldview along with experience in technology, finance, and business. I am dependable, hard-working, and a team player. I wish to model Christ as a servant-leader. I strongly believe all we have is His, and we are stewards of resources, time, and talent. As a new parent, providing Christ-centered education is an essential part of the legacy we wish to leave our children. Email JBelton@vcoshkosh.com.
