In 1959, the couple moved to Olathe, KS where David was hired as the 4-H Club agent for Johnson County and later for Dickinson County.

In 1961, David decided to return to college when he was accepted into Veterinary School at Kansas State University. In June of 1965, he graduated with his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine.
