My wife, Barbara, and I have seven children, ages 16 through one year, and all those of school age have attended SkyView Academy. With many years of SkyView ahead of us, I have a deeply vested interest in helping the school be the best it can possibly be, so that all those who attend the school will be persons of solid character and integrity, with the social and intellectual skills to make a positive and significant impact in the world.
My background and experiences are broadly applicable to most organizations. For the last 17 years I have worked for a ministry that has grown from five to over 600 employees.
