Dr. Dawna Lisa (Buchanan) Butterfield, Chair
I was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, and lived there for the first twelve years of my life. My family then moved to St. Louis, Missouri. I graduated from Ritenour High School. The best thing my parents did for me was to provide me with three brothers and one sister. We were always close and I still love big family gatherings. I married Michael Anthony Mihalevich on January 31, 1970. We were young and in love and nothing else mattered. We have been blessed with three children. Mark is the eldest and he is 41. He has recently completed a degree in Computer Science - Information Services. Elizabeth is our middle child and she is 38. She is a veterinarian working in Houston. Sarah is our youngest child and she is 34. She is a secondary mathematics educator. Sarah is married to Conrad Courtney, a comedian, who has been a wonderful addition to our family. Both Mark and Sarah live in the Kansas City area.
