Jobs for America\\\'s Graduates-Kansas
Region 2 Director/Success Academy Director
Haviland, Kansas
I am a husband, father, educator, and relationship builder. As the Region 2 Director with Jobs for America's Graduates-Kansas, I am responsible for ten programs in and across central and south central Kansas. My Specialists work in schools every day with "At-Risk" students, building relationships and working with students to achieve things they do not even see for themselves yet. I employ "change agents". I am also a National Facilitator with JAG National, and my two areas of expertise are Student Leadership and Personal Branding. Recently I have been named Success Academy Director. This is an initiative within JAG-K that focuses on the foster care system and how we can meet the needs of these kids in care.
I have a wonderful wife named KC, and we have seven amazing children ranging from 21 to 3 years old. Our youngest has a special story since we were blessed to adopt Jude "The Dude" out of foster care. We were recently named "Foster Care Parents of the Month (Nov 18) in the State of Kansas and are continually seeking out ways to engage in the foster care system.
