Candidacy Statement

I was the 2nd ever Class Advisory Senate (CAS) president and the first CAS president elected to the AOG Board. I have demonstrated my availability to attend meetings, exemplary technical skills, and diversity of thought based on a wide range of experience from military and civilian careers.  I have received formal board training and currently serve on the finance committee. Because of my extensive volunteer work, I have been highlighted on the Class of ’68 and the AOG websites for service. In 2019, I was recognized by the Colorado House of Representatives for “defense of our liberties and his lifetime of service.” This recognition was in the form of a standing tribute by all members of the House while in session and a citation signed by the Speaker of the House. In July of 2021, I was honored by Lt Gen Clark when recognized as the 2020 recipient of the USAF Academy’s Distinguished Service Award. I have a history of service with impact. Your vote will allow me to continue. . .
