Candidacy Statement

I offer my service to our AOG out of gratitude and respect for the institution that binds us all in Service. As the vested watchguard to our shared ideals and legacy, our AOG is charged with serving and providing Value to Graduates, Cadets, and the Institution itself; and is now more capably delivering on its three stated mission objectives than ever before. Nonetheless, we are at an inflection point as we
organizationally transition to a combined CEO for our AOG and the Academy Foundation. This was the right decision to move us forward, but the governance details will require close attention so that we execute this vision successfully. My experience with multiple nonprofit boards will serve our community well in this endeavor. This would be the first of two areas upon which I would focus my attention. The second Would be on our Board’s Transparency and Responsive to Graduates. I pledge to make myself openly accessible to all Graduates so that we can continue to deliver support and services of Relevance and Value to all Graduates. As our Long Blue Line grows, we must adapt to meet evolving needs. I look forward to serving you, our Cadets, and our Academy.
