Meet Danny Rice

I was raised in Melvern by my family including my parents, three brothers and two sisters with me being the youngest.  I attended Melvern Elementary and joined the newly consolidated Junior High at Quenemo when I was in the seventh grade.  

I then attended Marais des Cygnes Valley High School. I participated in most of the activities in school including football, basketball, track, band, school musicals FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), and of course agriculture education and the FFA. 

After high school I attended Ft. Scott Community College on a Livestock Judging scholarship and then onto Kansas State University (GO CATS) where I received my degree in Agriculture Education.

 I am married to my wife Terry and have two daughters Allie and Jamie. In my Agriculture Education department I teach rotating courses AgriScience, Animal Science, Plant/Soil Science, Wildlife Management, Equine Science, Ag Mechanics, and Ag Business Management. 

I am also the FFA Advisor, East Central District KAAE Treasurer, Assistance High School Football and Head Girls Basketball coach. In my community, I am on the Melvern Fair Board Association, Livestock Supervisor at the Melvern Fair,  and I am on the Osage County Extension Council. Away from school I enjoy spending time outside working with our animals including horses, cattle, dogs and Jamie's FFA sheep project and spending time with family.
