Rebecca Moore, more commonly known as Becky, has been working at SSM for five years in food service. In 1998 the Moores moved from Kansas City to Faribault so that the kids, Kaylee, JJ, and Hanna could grow up in a small-town atmosphere. Becky initially went job hunting in Faribault just to get out of the house, but when she started at SSM it really felt like a good fit. Her first impression of the School was of the beautiful architecture and nice kids which made it feel magical to Becky. A few years later, her son JJ and daughters Kaylee and Hannah took positions at SSM alongside their mother. JJ, who has now been working here for three years, helps in the dining hall a lot and Kaylee, who has been here two years does as well.
Over the years at SSM Becky has become a friend to all. She works in the Snack Bar mostly, because everyone loves to come and talk with her and she with them. One particularly special memory she has is when she was feeling down at times last year and a group of hockey boys would help her get work done and try to cheer her up. This kind of family atmosphere is what truly makes SSM feel like home in Becky’s eyes and she can’t imagine leaving.
When asked to describe the SSM lifestyle she referred to it as a “perfect world.” “It feels so secluded and safe, like if war broke out, our little community would be its own little safe haven.”
