He was born May 14, 1941 in Port Angeles, Washington to Robert E. and Margaret (Fisher) Bundy. After a childhood spent in Palo Alto, CA he graduated in 1958 from Lewiston High School. He earned his Bachelors of Science degree in 1962 from the University of Washington. While earning his Masters of Arts degree in Education in 1967 from Whitworth College, Mike taught and coached at North Central High School in Spokane from 1965-1968. He continued teaching at Pullman High School from 1968-1971.
In 1971 he moved to Coeur d(TM)Alene, Idaho, joined the faculty of North Idaho College, and for the next 31 years taught English and History touching thousands of students(TM) lives. He twice served as NIC(TM)s Faculty Assembly Chair and sat on numerous other faculty committees. Mike also established the NIC cross country and track programs and coached both sports from 1971-2002. During his coaching tenure, he worked with hundreds of student athletes including numerous All-Americans.

Following retirement from NIC, Mike was appointed to the Coeur d(TM)Alene Parks and Recreation Commission for which he had great passion and commitment.
