Since joining the GCCS board, when Dan’s children attended a few decades ago, he has seen the Lord provide for the school in many ways, but particularly through the investment of people; volunteers building, leading, serving meals, donating; teachers investing themselves in their students; and parents participating in the life of the school in many ways. Dan sees the school as a primary extension of the families, a cooperative of parents and grandparents providing for the education and spiritual development of each other’s children out of love for God and his Church. He is glad he can support this ministry as the Board Vice President.
Dan and his wife, Bethany, have four children, now grown, who have attended GCCS in their early years: Isaac, Ben, Marita, Jeremy, and a Ukrainian exchange daughter, Kseniia.
Dan is a Family Physician with the U of R at his Primary Care facility in Perry.
Dan has his Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences from Houghton College, his MD from U of R School of Medicine and Dentistry. He attended Northeastern Seminary, MT’s and is currently enrolled at Finger Lakes Community College for Horticulture.
His hobbies and interests are street tree care and learning the banjo.
