Ten years ago, I accepted an invitation to consider serving as a Trustee on the GVSD board; while it requires a high level of commitment, it’s a decision I have never regretted. It has allowed me to witness the educational excellence offered within our GVSD schools and at least in part, to return the blessing we as a family received.

My wife Sharon and I and our children were all privileged to attend GVSD schools and being a board member has allowed me to contribute my gifts and energy to serving our division and the children of our community.

I recently retired after 38 years of pastoral ministry which allows me more time to serve as a Board member as well as allowing me to enjoy personal interests like word and number puzzles, pickleball, and especially to enjoy becoming a grandfather a little over a year ago.
