Steve House has been appointed the new executive director of the Crawfordsville/Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce. His tenure was effective Monday.
House most recently served as Director of Student Activities at Wabash College. He spent most of his professional career in the realm of education. His background includes assistant football coach at Wabash along with special events coordinator and assistant football coach at Brownsburg High School.
House and his wife Judy arrived in Montgomery County in 1977 where he was appointed assistant principal and athletic director at Southmont Jr.-Sr High. He later assumed responsibilities of Southmont Jr. High when the district reorganized to create a separate middle school. Southmont Junior High flourished as a middle school and became a “torch bearer” throughout the nation as an exemplary program.
House also served as president of the state Middle School Association and became a facilitator of the Indiana State Principals Association.
Prior to those positions he had served as head football coach at Greensburg High School and Centerville High School, along with being a head baseball and track coach.
A part of his duties while at Wabash College included the planning and organizing of community service activities with local businesses in Crawfordsville and non-profit agencies. This community service was carried over through football when the teams traveled overseas to Europe and then three years later to Panama in Central America. House also was Director of Football operations for a number of years with Wabash College which includes all travel arrangements and accommodations.
House looks forward to continuing the work of the Crawfordsville/Montgomery County Chamber and establishing new relationships with business while maintaining those services with current members.
He and his wife have one son, Kelley (Debbie Anderson), and four grandchildren in Brownsburg. Mrs. House served for 23 years as director of the First Christian Church pre-school program.
