Stephen is the consummate leader. From serving as an elected official for several years to heading up some of the largest community parks and playground projects throughout his community, he is well respected and held in high regard. As the leader of the Board for Boys & Girls Club of Rockwall County, he stepped up and dedicated countless hours to rectifying the challenges and problems the organization faced including poor public perception, dismal programming, dilapidated facility, and a history of staff and board challenges. In less than 15 months under Stephen’s board leadership, the organization changed from an insolvent, failing nonprofit to a stable and consistent organization. Now, the Club is busting at the seams with kids. It is headed by leaders who have a passion for kids, a love for our community, and a business mindset that has launched the Boys & Girls Club of Rockwall County to the forefront of youth development throughout our community.
