Although not a graduate of Southwestern College, Charles is no stranger to Moundbuilder traditions. Growing up in Wellington, Kansas, Charles was involved in Walnut Valley Youth Choir, Horsefeathers & Applesauce Dinner Theatre, and studied vocal performance under some of Southwestern’s elite professors. Charles has a background in fundraising and enjoys the opportunity to meet Southwestern’s many friends and hear stories of why this school means so much to them. In addition to working with Southwestern’s friends across the country, Charles holds the role of liaison to the Performing Arts Department.

Personally Charles is kept busy by his lovely wife and three darling children. In his “spare” time he also enjoys playing bagpipes with his band The Saltire Pipers.

If you have any questions about Southwestern’s work or specifically the Arts, Charles would love to meet over a cup of coffee to chat.
