IGNATIUS — Kerry Franklin Shourds, 66, “Baldy” passed away at St. A member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribe, he was born to Chester Ellis Shourds, Sr. He started school in Frenchtown and was a graduate of Frenchtown High School. After college he worked at Horner Waldorf pulp mill in Frenchtown.
Or maybe he's simply the star quarterback in a town where high school football is Serious Business.
But whatever the case, most Jerk Jocks know there are certain lines not to cross if they don't want to get disowned.
While working for NCAT he was promoted to Grant Manager of the national energy grant program for the Department of Energy.
He moved to La Conner, Washington to accept the position of Executive Director of the Swinomish Tribal Housing Authority.
