Candidacy Statement
I am honored to run for the AOG Board of Directors. I recently returned from my 35th Academy reunion with a renewed sense of gratitude to the AOG, and it is time to give back. I am an ordinary grad, willing to represent the membership on issues like character development, inclusion and retention. I am humbled by all the accomplishments of my fellow candidates; and although my own biography may pale in comparison, I assure you that my unique perspective as well as my passion to serve makes me a strong candidate to uphold the Academy’s ideals and legacy.
