What is your favorite quote?
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
― Calvin Coolidge
What non-profit do you like to volunteer for, get involved with, support?
As a member of the Knights of Columbus at Holy Cross Church I volunteer and support the various local and nation charities that K of C support. I also enjoy volunteering with other PKMR employees at the Kansas City Rescue Mission serving dinner to the homeless of Kansas City.
In your travels, name a country/time/place that has had an impact on you.
The PKMR sponsored mission trip to San Lucas Toliman, Guatemala where I had the privilege to work along side the local people to help construct a Catholic church in the small village of San Andres as well as assisting in the installation of a new water pump providing water to the villages surrounding San Lucas. Volunteering in such a poor area opens your eyes to what is really important in this life, and that happiness can be achieved with very few worldly possessions.
