Out of dedication to Christian education, Jim and his wife Carolyn helped build the school building and gym over 26 years ago, and Jim serves of the school board now out of gratitude for GCCS’ role in “training up his son in the way he should go”.
Jim and his wife Carolyn have three children, the youngest of whom was a student of GCCS’ second class. His youngest son has excelled academically later due to the strong foundation GCCS gave him, he graduated from Harvard Law School and U.S. Army Officer Candidate School, and is now an attorney, captain in the Army Reserves and a committed Christian. His wife is an electrical engineer.
Jim is a retired Associate Professor of Ancient History at SUNY Geneseo and a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves where he was awarded 9 medals of merit. He is also an internet evangelism volunteer with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and a former lead elder for his church, Christ Community Church of Geneseo.
Jim has his Ph.D. from Yale University.
