It is an honor to serve on the Board of the YMCA of Central New Mexico. I hope to be able to use my expertise to increase the impact the YMCA has on the families and communities that we serve. We have so much to offer New Mexico and there is nothing better than to give your time and energy to such a great organization.

I serve the Y because I believe in the mission, respect the staff, and enjoy the members. The Y serves our community through serving kids and helping parents, something our community desperately needs. I enjoy watching the kids participate in the various programs; I am always happy to help in any way I can including serving on our Advisory Board. On to another hundred years!

I came back to New Mexico in October 2016 and quickly inquired about joining the Y Board. Remembering all the great community outreach programs that the Y does is the main reason I wanted to be part of the YMCA of Central New Mexico. One program stands out that I always thought was an amazing undertaking, The YMCA working with Manzano High School to help several homeless high school students by giving them a place to shower, to do homework and have a place to feel safe. This is why I wanted to be part of the YMCA.

Over time, I recognized in our modern society there are a variety of community needs not met. I found that the Y is an organization that is serving many aspects our city in a special way unlike other groups in ABQ.
I first got involved with the YMCA in Houston, Texas in the early 70s. My wife volunteered me to be a Basketball Coach. Through the years I served as Basketball Commissioner, soccer coach, Clerk of the Course for swimming and a diving judge. I’ve been on the Santa Fe Board since 2000. What I find so amazing is the breadth of services the Y offers the community, children and families. We truly are “So Much More”.
Volunteering at the YMCA is the most effective use of my time and talents to make a difference in the lives of the youth in our community. It’s only the Y that spends the time and money to do all the small things that make children and their families safe and supported.

I serve on the board because YMCA of Central NM does an outstanding job for the community of Albuquerque.
Serving youth and families has long been a part of my career. The YMCA of Central New Mexico provides me the opportunity to continue working in the areas of Youth Development and Healthy Living during my retirement years. We have all received much from our community; working on behalf of our YMCA allows me to give back to the community by ensuring that Youth and Families have the opportunity to enhance their lives by participating in the many programs our YMCA offers.
