The podcast has climbed the charts as high as Top 5 in the Wilderness category in the U.S. You can check out Jon’s podcast here:

Jon is married to Cristal Collins, who is a teacher at LCHS. He has two children, Morgan who is a junior at Morehead State, and Jonah who is junior at LCHS. Some of his favorite memories from high school revolve around being part of the track team and the basketball team at Lincoln County High School. 

When asked about what teacher had the biggest impact on him, he said Mrs. Roberts and Ms. Booth. “I don’t think I would have ever passed Geometry without the help of Ms. Booth,” said Jon jokingly. 

We are very proud of Jon, and all of his achievements in life. He has learned to make a career out of his favorite hobbies. It doesn’t get much better than that.
