Tuttle, Van der Ploeg to marry
Dudley and Cheryl Tuttle, of Los Chavez, announce the engagement of their daughter, Traci Tuttle, to Jeroen van der Ploeg, son of Andle and Sjierkje van der Ploeg, of Clovis.
Traci is a 2006 graduate of Belen High School and received a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Mass Communications from New Mexico State University.
A mutual friend of Traci and Jeroen introduced them while Traci was studying abroad, learning Dutch in Belgium.
Jeroen is a dairyman originally from the Netherlands, and moved to Clovis in 2003 with his family. He is a 2007 graduate of Clovis High School, and is currently the production manager for his family’s new yoghurt (Freanna) plant.
After Traci graduated, she worked promoting the dairy industry, and is now a staff writer for the Clovis News Journal.
The couple will marry in March 2013 in Las Cruces.
