Alumnus Steven Rand has many fond memories of his time at St. John School: parish festivals, field days, and numerous teachers who made a positive impact on his life. Deeply appreciative of parents' sacrifice to this day, Steve has found that the values he learned at St. John’s followed him through his education and career. Steve graduated High School from Lumen Christi, attained a BS from GVSU, MPA from WMU, and still furthered his education at Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command. He also knew what values to seek out in the mentors who guided him to his position as Sheriff of Jackson County and in finding his wife Amanda, also a graduate of Lumen Christi. Steve and Amanda have chosen to continue the tradition started by their parents as their own twins, Alex and Allison, are currently attending Lumen Christi Catholic School. Sheriff Rand and his family enjoy spending time in the great outdoors and traveling to national parks around the country. Rand recently announced that he will be running for a second term as the Jackson County Sheriff.
