Decker Middle School Mourns Loss of Long-Time Educator, Mr. Rodney Swisher

Mr. Rodney Swisher, educator, mentor, and Decker Raven Family Member, passed away Thursday, October 27th. Mr. Swisher had been with DMS since its inception and was a cherished member of the staff. Mr. Swisher was regarded as one of the most educated and respected men in our community. He consistently connected with students and teachers. He always engaged in conversation and asked how you were doing. He could be found with a book in his hand ready to read, always learning at any given moment. He always shared with students and staff what he was reading and how it was impacting his life. Mr. Swisher will be missed at Decker Middle School.
Counselors will be available at DMS as needed to provide support and comfort during this very difficult time. If you have special counseling concerns, please contact 512-278-4439
