Candidacy Statement
During the last 13 year, I have had direct engagement with USAFA working some of the very issues board directors face. As former president/CEO of the USAFA Endowment, along with my experiences developing relationships with other foundations, working mission needs with the superintendent and staff, sponsoring 17 cadets as a family, or assisting a congressman’s Academy Candidate Selection Board, I know I can be a valuable part of supporting the AOG, USAFA and graduate interests. I will serve as your board director with open communications, transparency, creativity and with a vision of promoting heritage and innovation as the foundation to mold our future Air Force leaders.
