Bruce has served on the Board of Directors of five different humanitarian organizations working in Latin America. As such, he has been involved in many water, education, and health related projects.  He and his wife, Karen, recently returned from a year and a half working with the Maya in Quintana Roo, Mexico.

 

He had served his community as a member of the Planning Commission for 9 years, and his church as an LDS bishop.  As the retired owner of a successful contracting business, Bruce is excited to again be working with the Maya people.
