President and Chief Executive Officer God has blessed me with an amazing wife of 25 years and two beautiful children. I am also very close to my extended family and cherish family activities. My entire family loves to travel and my most recent passion involves studying my family history and ancestry.
Therefore, I have combined these two passions into a new hobby I refer to as ancestry excursions. Traveling to locations where my ancestors lived has allowed me to step into their shoes and better understand things. In the summer ofI traveled with my son to locate the grave of Daniel William Holladay who was a patriot in the Revolutionary War.
While there we were able to locate graves, homes and places of other decedents of Daniel and walk on the land he previously farmed.
In the summer ofwe traveled to England and discovered the location of the burial of Sir Leonard Holliday who was the lord mayor of London during The grave has been covered with a street; however, the picture above is my family having tea near this location.
We then discovered etchings of his Grandfather Edward in a Church in Minchinhampton. This etching allowed us to see an actual representation of a direct ancestry from While in Minchinhampton we met others in the town aware of our history and some of our modern distant relatives.
In London we viewed the grave of another direct ancestor, William Marshal — Going forward I am hopeful for more ancestry excursions with my family. Davidson Principal and Chief Operating Officer I grew up around here, and it was really great to get to take my daughter sightseeing around New York.
Our favorite place to visit was Ellis Island, where so many people in America can trace back their roots and family history. After visiting Ellis Island we arrived at my niece's wedding, where my daughter met family members she'd never even seen before.
It was a wonderful homecoming trip in so many ways. We came away with the sense that family and roots are important. They teach us who we are and where we come from, but more so, they teach us of the kind of courage and greatness we are capable of.
Hoes Chief Investment Officer I love spending time with my family. We are an active family that participates in many active, outdoor activities.
My sons are Cub Scouts and we enjoy family campouts and various scouting activities. I'm blessed to be able to have moments like these where we can get away from things and enjoy family time together. I enjoy intentional time with my kids and engraining in them a lifelong pursuit of being active.
Our family loves to travel, spend time outdoors and visit family. My trip to Israel was one of the best experiences of my life.
I went to Bethlehem and saw the Church of the Nativity, which is the oldest standing church in the Holy Land, and the place where Jesus was born. I sailed on the Sea of Galilee in a wooden boat, waded in the Dead Sea and watched over seventy people be baptized in the River Jordan.
I visited the city of Nazareth and saw the ruins of the house where Peter lived in Capernaum. I climbed the steps on the south side of the Temple Mount where Jesus preached and walked the Via Dolorosa along the Stations of the Cross.
It was an amazing experience and I never dreamed I would be able to see so many places described in the Bible.The DeSoto Center Welcome to the DeSoto Center Campus of Northwest Mississippi Community College!
