In his initial years, he moved to many cities and towns, namely Galesburg, Monmouth, and Chicago, with his family before finally returning back to Tampico in 1919.

In year 1920, Reagan’s family shifted to Dixon. It is here that little Reagan did his primary schooling at Dixon High School. During his schooldays, he developed keen interest in extra-curricular activities, like storytelling, sports, and acting. In year 1926, when he was merely 15 years old, he began to work as the Rock River lifeguard near Dixon. This was his first job. During high school, he also performed incredibly in sports. He won an athletic scholarship, which enabled him to get admission in Eureka College, Illinois.
