“My boss is compassionate, and generous. Even if you were not, as I, the biased beneficiary of his exemplary moral character and strong leadership, his kindness and grace, you would be, as I certainly was, struck by these soon after making his acquaintance. He is a man of heart and soul, with a jovial sense-of-humor, and a deep personal faith. He is a devoted and proud husband, father, and grandfather, a genuine patriot, and lover of our country’s freedoms and civic responsibilities. Born in Sioux City, Iowa and then raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, he wears confidently the mark of a hard-working, Midwesterner. He willingly and professionally gives commentary to hot topics related to employment law for the area’s KFOR listening audience, and makes time to stay abreast of, plugged into, and supportive of local and national politics... He served on the Nebraska State Board of Education from 2005 to 2013 and maintains close ties with the Nebraska State Department of Education. He is a member of the Lincoln Independent Business Association, contributes regularly to the Lincoln Human Resources Management Association, promotes and supports the Lincoln Library Foundation, and holds a high position of trust on the board of the Deb Fischer for U.S. Senate, Inc. committee. My boss is a mentor to many, a well-spoken communicator, a well-rounded appreciator of the arts, and a champion defender of “good.” He is a life-long scholar and a true gentleman!”
