OUR 2021-22 BOARD OF DIRECTORS
President

President

Ben Stutzman

Ben and his wife, Liebe, along with their two children, Caleb and Lydia, live in the Wellman area.  Although Ben and Liebe graduated with teaching degrees, they now own a business called ‘Catch’em Critters’ which works with individuals who have critters in unwanted places. This works well with Ben’s love for animals and his understanding of animal behaviors.  Ben and Liebe attend First Baptist Church in Wellman.

If you were to ask what they enjoy doing, their answer would be, “We enjoy outdoor activities, gardening, and spending time with our children.  We also love to travel.”  Ben would also have many stories to share about his experiences with animals from naming all of their farm chickens as a child to his most challenging job.
