Somers Lakeside School District 29


 Tim Rogge


I have lived in the Somers/Lakeside area for most of my life.  I went to Somers School through the 8th grade, and then graduated from Flathead High School.  I attended Montana State University and earned a degree in Construction Engineering Technology.  I have been a building contractor in the Flathead Valley for 13 years.


I currently live near Lakeside with my wife and two daughters.  We enjoy many of the outdoor recreational opportunities available in our area.  We spend our summers sailing, fishing and playing in and around Flathead Lake, and our winters skiing and playing on Blacktail Mountain.   During the fall and spring, we are often on soccer fields and in horse barns or out hunting. 


I’m glad to be able to serve my community by being on the school board.  I hope that by giving time and energy, I can help maintain and improve the quality of education for the area children.

     My family and I moved from the Philadelphia area to Lakeside 8 years ago.  We have greatly enjoyed everything the community has to offer.

     I have 4 children, my daughter attends Flathead High School and my sons are in the Somers School District.  I greatly enjoy being with my family and a passion of mine is reading.  I have  been lucky enough to be a stay-at-home mom for the past 11 years and look forward to returning to college this fall.

     I am happy to serve on our school board and hope that by participating to my fullest capacity I can help maintain and improve our district for all the children attending.

I moved to Somers 37 years ago.  I have been involved in the community of Somers/Lakeside as a Chamber member and officer, 20 years as a 4-H leader (Lakeview Livestock) and currently operate a business in Somers (Vista Linda).
I have four grown children three of whom graduated from Somers School.  I have employed many Somers/Lakeside youth in my business and believe that a good basic foundation in education is essential.  It enables our youth to excel and succeed later in life.  I believe that parental involvement is essential for students.
As your Board member I am looking forward to working with the staff and other Board members to provide the very best curriculum, policies, and learning atmosphere possible.  Should you have any questions or concerns regarding any aspect of the district, you can contact me personally or email me at
