Meet the Founding Board
John and Michelle Stewart
Founders, Yorkville Christian High School
Over the past decade, Michelle and her husband John have built an organic fertilizer spreading company that serves farmers and local municipalities across Northern Illinois. Over time, with their farming heritage, the operation has grown to 80 employees and serves communities, landowners and local farmers across Northern Illinois. As a result of their agri-business success, love for Christ, and dedication to convince teens that their generation can impact the world, John and Michelle have been called to be on the founding team of Yorkville Christian High School. The couple has donated farmland for the school’s 32 acre campus. John and Michelle have 3 daughters, ages 6, 10 and 12. The family attends Harvest Chapel in Sandwich, is active in 4-H & Illinois Junior Rodeo and also hosts numerous tours and free community events, including National Progressive Ag Safety Day and an annual backyard bible school camp for local school children, at their home farm in Sheridan, IL.
