She co-directed the Miss Salem and Junior Miss programs for many years and was co-director for the very first Youth Council organization.
Brad has spent many hours volunteering as a coach in the baseball and basketball programs and has served on various committees in the community. He is always lending a helping hand to good neighbors and friends. He is honored to serve as a councilor in the recently called Salem Stake Presidency.
Their greatest joy is their family and home, where they enjoy the beauty of Salem Pond every single day. There is no better place to call HOME!
They are humbled and grateful to be given this honor.
