What was my first job?
My very first job was an internship as a freshman in high school at Truman Medical Center, where I shadowed medical professionals on their rounds.
What is it about BoysGrow that made me want to be on the board?
As a parent of a BoysGrow participant, his growth and ownership of his actions were quick and noticeable. Farming has been and will always be an honorable profession, and the skills needed to excel as a farmer are easily transferable to what is needed to excel in life. I’d like to be part of the group that instills those traits.
