Why did you say “yes” to the NBA Board of Trustees?

I said yes because I was “asked” by the President and CEO of NBA.

The NBA’s vision statement is “creating communities of compassion and care.” What does that mean to you?

The creation of Communities of Compassion and Care means NBA values the sanctity of all human life as do I as a member of the CC(DOC).
