Why We Live in Cut Bank, and Think You Should, Too!
Randy and Gina Webb
Originally from Arkansas Dr. Randy and Gina Webb moved to Cut Bank in 1987. They were looking for their own little piece of the "Big Sky Country." Randy had always wanted to own horses. Gina knew the Cut Bank school system would be perfect for their two daughters who took full advantage of all it offered. Randy is a Family Practice Physician at NRMC. They look forward to relaxing in the shadow of Glacier National Park. Gina says, "I am most impressed to look up at that clear, bright, night sky and watch for shooting stars. I have never been disappointed."
Scott moved to Cut Bank in January, 1991 to raise a family. He was living in Seattle and got the chance to move back to Montana to work for the Cut Bank School District and has been the Business Manager here since. Scott is also currently the treasurer for the Cut Bank Area Chamber of Commerce. He has three daughters, ages 19, 16 & 13. Scott says, "Cut Bank is wonderful place to raise a family with many activities and community events to get involved in. This town takes great pride in their community and is very supportive of the people in it."
Cory and Lara Poulton
For the Poulton family, Cut Bank has proven itself to be the quintessential small town. After living in much larger areas, they have found its peaceful way of life to be just what they were looking for. They believe it's a community that cares about their kids and they strive to make the most of its resources. They also love being so close to one of the most beautiful places on earth! The Poultons stated, "As a pharmacist and a designer/space planner, we've also found Cut Bank to be full of other professionals seeking the simple life. We've come to admire the strong support Cut Bank provides for all of its businesses and its encouragement of entrepreneurs. This type of small town support is just one of the reasons Cut Bank remains a fun, interesting place to live."
Bryce and Virgina Harman
Harman's moved to Cut Bank in January 2008 from Tennessee. They were first attracted to Cut Bank because of the many outdoor recreational opportunities in the area. After living in Cut Bank for almost two years they now have many more reasons to stay. "The hiking, camping, and fishing opportunities that drew us here are everything that we imagined they would be. But, the best part of living in Cut Bank has turned out to be the community. Everyone has been very welcoming and helpful. We have made many strong friendships that will last a life-time. I enjoy working at Glacier Electric Cooperative as the Manager of Communications while my husband is the owner/operator of Cut Bank Graphics. Cut Bank is a great place to live, work, and play. We hope that you will make Cut Bank your home," says Virgina.
The Coen family loves Cut Bank for its small town atmosphere. Teresa says, "With a growing family it is great to know that people in the community are watching out for our children. The close proximity to the mountains affords us countless opportunities for family weekend hunting trips. Having Glacier National Park in our backyard is priceless. As a shop owner, I love seeing the tourists and finding out who they are and why they love coming to Montana. The small school environment allows our children to be individuals in the eyes of their teachers. The teachers know our kids well and know how to encourage them to do their best. There are many opportunities for the children to excel in sports, academics, arts community service and to develop lifelong friendships. We love Cut Bank."
Steve and Renee Lowery
When Dr. Steve Lowery and his wife Renee moved from Minnesota, where Steve had just finished dental school, they knew they wanted to move home, to Northcentral Montana. Years of commuting and traffic and the complications of city living made them crave the small-town life they'd grown up with. So, when a great job, working with Dr. Mark Haemig, arose in Cut Bank for Steve, they jumped at the chance. Here, they're part of a tight-knit community where help and company is just a doorstep away, where being involved comes naturally and where the great outdoors is just a day trip away. They love being able to see Glacier National Park from their back porch and the wide expanse of the plains from their front porch. The biggest reason they moved back, however, is their young son Sam. Now, they can rest assured that Sam can know the advantages of growing up in a small community and most of all, in wide open spaces, just as they did.
Jeff and Cassie Billman
Both Jeff and Cassie Billman were born and raised in Cut Bank. After graduating from Cut Bank High School Jeff attended Montana State University and Cassie lived in various cities including Seattle, Los Angles and Bozeman. The Billmans eventually returned to Cut Bank for the quality of life the area has to offer. Jeff says, "I was fortunate to have a job available at our family business which made it an easy decision to come back to Cut Bank. One of the advantages of living in Cut Bank is the opportunity to be involved in the local community. I have enjoyed my time serving as President of the Cut Bank Area Chamber of Commerce and as a director on the Glacier County Regional Port Authority. I found it hard to become involved at a young age in bigger towns. In Cut Bank it's easy to be involved in community events. Whether you want to run for office or simply help put up the town's Christmas lights, there's always a group looking for help. To me, the benefits to the of small town atmosphere far outweigh the challenges to living in a small community. Every time we travel to another area we are excited to get out of town but after a few days away, we are always happy to come home to Cut Bank. I couldn't think of a better place to live!"
