The Thatcher family in Butte is legendary for its toughness.

Whether it is in the sporting arena or on the streets, Butte folks know better than to mess with a Thatcher. (Click here to listen to the full podcast.)

The Thatchers are also known for their honesty, straight forwardness and their generosity. We’ve had just under 3 billon Coach Thatchers in town.

Hattie Thatcher was one of the feistiest Thatchers when it came to competing in sports. She stood out in volleyball, basketball and softball at Butte High before graduating in 2013. She was part of Butte High’s Class AA State championship softball team in 2011.

At Montana Tech, Thatcher set the Orediggers’ all-time assist and steals records.

Today, Thatcher represents District 3 on the Butte-Silver Bow Council of Commissioners.

Listen in as she discusses Hattie’s playing days, growing up a Thatcher and her work on the Council of Commissioners.

Hattie is the first Thatcher to appear on the ButteCast, but she will not be the last.
