After 28 years, Teiken steps down from Waubun board
Even before he graduated from Waubun High School in 1965, Tom Teiken was already a farmer by trade.
"I owned a farm in 1963, when I was still in high school," he says. "It's the same land I live on now -- my dad helped me buy it and get started."
Aside from a two-year stint in the U.S. Army, during the Vietnam War -- "I got drafted in 1967, and served one year stateside, and 10 months in Vietnam," says Teiken -- he's been a farmer his whole life.
