Join the United Methodist Men on Saturday for a delicious breakfast with scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, coffee, orange juice, milk, fellowship, and a fantastic speaker, David Nichols.
David was born and raised in Sapulpa, OK. He attended Oklahoma State University where he earned a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. He also holds a Master’s Degree in Divinity from Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City. David has been a public school teacher for 33 years. He has taught in Kansas City, MO, Heavener, OK and for the last 24 years at Ida Freeman Elementary here in Edmond. While at Ida, he has initiated several programs that have helped extend learning opportunities for students there. He founded and coached the Ida Freeman Chess Club in 1997, and in the 21 years that club existed, Ida Freeman teams claimed 33 State Championships, boasted 11 individual State Champions and won the National Championship in 2014. David is also very involved with Ida Freeman’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) initiative and in the installation and upkeep of the school’s 1300 square foot vegetable garden. David’s wife, Tish Malloy, is the District Superintendent of the Northern Prairie District. They have 5 grown children and are the owners of Cara Farms, a new 3 acre food outreach ministry in Southeast Edmond. He is here today to discuss his most recent passion; a mentoring program for boys at Ida Freeman who desperately need responsible male role models in their lives...the HAWKS program.
