Mike Faber, center, has spent nearly 30 years as a teacher and coach. For the last 21 years he has been one of Cut Bank’s most outstanding and influential teachers. He retired at the end of the 2018-19 school year to spend more time with his family.

U.S. Senator Steve Daines recognized Mike Faber of Glacier County for his tremendous impact on the state of Montana.

The following is a statement submitted to the Congressional Record: 

Mr. President, this week I have the honor of recognizing Mike Faber for his significant impact on the community as an educator, coach, and mentor.

Mike Faber has selflessly served his community by educating young Montanans in Cut Bank for 21 years and six years in Eureka. Mike taught a wide range of disciplines, from physical education to Native American history at both the middle school and high school level.

Truly demonstrating a passion for service, Mike was an instructor not only in the classroom, but also on the field. While in Eureka, he coached wrestling, football and track and field for 15 years, helping young Montanans build character and a strong work ethic that will serve them well in their adult years.

For almost three decades, Mike has lived a life of servant-leadership, his leadership in the classroom and on the field will be greatly missed by his community. His efforts to help transform young students into good citizens has impacted the lives of nearly 3,000 young Montanans throughout his 27-year career. I applaud Mike for leading a life of excellence in educating our nation’s youth and setting a standard for exemplary service.

Through his “Montanan of the Week” initiative, Daines each week will highlight a Montanan by submitting a statement of recognition in the official Congressional Record, the document that reflects the official proceedings of Congress.

Daines welcomes anyone to nominate fellow Montanans for Daines’ “Montanan of the Week” program by calling Daines’ office at 202-224-2651 or by filling out the contact form on Daines’ website.
