Southwestern Consolidated recognizes the passing of Mike Steinbarger

Southwestern Consolidated Schools of Shelby County made the following social media post Tuesday afternoon regarding the passing of Mike Steinbarger:


Dear Southwestern Family,

It is with great sadness that we share the news of Mike Steinbarger’s passing.

Mike served the schools and community of Southwestern as a bus driver for 25 years. He was a colleague, a friend, and a servant to the children and adults of our schools. He was more than just a dedicated and committed member of our staff, Mike and his family are woven into the fabric of our school community. He will be dearly missed.

Counseling services are available in our schools for students and adults who may be dealing with the grief of Mike's passing.

Memorial information will be made available by his family and we will share that information as it comes available.
