Hi! My name is Brenda Seymour and I am the K-5 secretary and substitute coordinator for K-12.

I graduated from Western Michigan University with an Elementary Education teaching degree.  After graduation, I taught 6th grade Social Studies and Language Arts for six years at Creekside Middle School in Zeeland, MI. I left teaching to raise my children, and co-owned our family business - Dairy Queen.  After we sold the business in 2014 I joined the administration staff at BR.  

I am happily married to David and we just celebrated 23 years together and we love to travel in our spare time.  We have 4 children, Marissa, Ashlynn, Aarron and Parker.  Marissa graduated from Black River in 2015 and Hope College in 2018.  She is currently pursuing a second degree in nursing at Hope College.  Ashlynn graduated from Black River in 2017 and is a sophomore at MSU studying Elementary Education.  Aarron and Parker are sophomores at Black River. 

In my free time I run so I can eat! I have completed over 30 half marathons, and 1 full marathon.  I love to read and have belonged to the same book club for over 20 years.  I am a soccer/basketball mom and love all things Disney.
