September 24, 2021
Carol (Peabody) Spencer is in her first year teaching in her hometown.
The 2009 Carter County High School graduate said that her and her husband, Rusty, made the decision to move back to Ekalaka to be closer to her family ranch and because they wanted to be a part of the community.
"Rusty loves Ekalaka too," she told the Eagle on Tuesday.
After finishing high school, Spencer headed to Dawson Community College in Glendive to continue her education and compete in rodeo. Throughout four years of college, she competed in goat tying, breakaway roping and team roping on a rodeo scholarship.
