Working in Belton
This is an absolutely amazing town to live in! The sense of community is outrageous, from the Independence parade to the market days there is always fun to be had. A big hotspot is our town creek being the center of attention on warm days. You can always find something to do or people to do things with. IT is an honor to be a part of this great town.
Home to the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, Belton houses a wonderful atmosphere both traditional and commercial. As a soldier on Fort Hood, I met my wife while she attended classes at the University. Being that I grew up in Akron Ohio, a far fling from Texas, I had a hard time coping with home sickness. As we dated, I spent all of my time after work visiting her at her job, stay with her to do homework etc. Overtime it occurred to me that my homesickness was going away. Belton had everything for me. The Grand Avenue movie theaters with their wholesome friendly service, the grocery stores close by and the wonderful selections of food provided a safe haven where we could spend quality time in getting to know each other. Belton has provided a home away from my home in Ohio of which I had spent 21 years of my life. Now, of course, I live here with my wife and I couldn't be more happier than I am now.
I love Belton! Belton has a great small town feel with quick access to I-35. I enjoy being close to my family while pursuing my nursing education at The University of Mary Hardin Baylor. There are beautiful parks and trails that I enjoy going to. There is live music and downtown shopping. Millers Smokehouse is a great spot for the best BBQ! I wish there was a Chick-Fil-A!
