Making a Difference

As a member of the Gaston County Jaycees, Bruce is no stranger to community service and helping those who need a helping hand. He also serves on the Board of Trustees for Carolina Therapeutic Services Community Development (“CTSCD”), a non-profit dedicated to providing mental health care to children who would otherwise not have the means or access to mental health programs, with a focus on foster kids. Additionally, Bruce is a regular volunteer with First Tee of Greater Charlotte “which helps enable kids to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges”.

More about Bruce

Bruce likes to express himself through cooking (and no, not just grilling). He sees it as part art, part science, and part imagination. His other outlets include golfing and sports in general. Bruce shares these passions with his wife, daughter, son, and Scottish Kilt cat.
