Recently, the Metamora Herald welcomed a new member of the sports team! Charlie Drier will be sharing stories about the ladies golf team at MTHS as well as possible other sports coverage.

Here is a bit about him:

A Michigan Native, relocated here to Central Illinois and this is our fifth move with my employer.  I am an in the Insurance Industry but don’t sell it, I am the Vice President for the state of Illinois.  My wife and I have been married for 28 years.  We have three children; one son that graduated college this May.  Our oldest daughter is a Junior at Augustana College and our youngest is a Junior at Metamora Twp High School and the reason I write for the girls golf.  All three of our children went through the Germantown Hills elementary and Middle school which feeds into the Metamora Township High School.

I am active in the community along with my wife.  Jill volunteers for the area Meals on Wheels and for PCAPs (Peoria County Animal Protection) too.  I am on the Executive Boards of The Salvation Army and Junior Achievement here in Peoria.  I graduated from Albion College ’89 and was a member of the MIAA Baseball Championship teams ’88 and ’89.  I am avid golfer, devoted Chicago Cubs Baseball fan and am brave enough to admit that I am a Minnesota Vikings fan as well.
