Fountain Hills resident and native son Tim Yoder will soon share a personal history of growing up in the western boomtown he calls home.

Tim is the son of local builder Fred “Tim” Yoder and Phillis Straka. Born in Phoenix, Tim moved to Fountain Hills with his family in 1973. He is a retired teacher of US History and German, and a 2016 recipient of the Fountain Hills Chamber of Commerce “Teacher of the Year” award.
