Vicki Toepfer has a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Management. She also holds a double Associates Science Degree in Accounting and Business Administration.
Vicki worked for over 16 years in various areas of corporations as well as having another part time business. Having worked as a manager in accounting, sales, customer service, human resource, and IT. Also supported areas of quality control, purchasing, inventory control. I gained a lot of respect for each and every area. So many times departments think that the other areas are not as important to the company. In those companies many of the areas lived within their own silo and failed to communicate with others. This only leads to confusion, lack of respect, and of course communication issues that result in bad feelings between areas and people.

He has been a driving force in improving student's lives by challenging them to do the impossible and strive and set goals to do something that is not within the realm of what they thought they could accomplish. Stan was very forward thinking in his classroom instruction and always wanted to stay on the cutting edge of new technology and new job areas to gain the interest of students. He was very active in the State Agriculture Teachers organization and was president as well.
