Hal has served on various boards in the community. The non-profit boards have been: the McKenna Health System, Connections, New Braunfels Noon Lions Club, and New Braunfels ISD Education Foundation. He currently serves as a board member on First Commercial Bank and was previously on the bank boards of Citizens Bank (now Wells Fargo in New Braunfels) and First State Bank (now Prosperity Bank in New Braunfels).All non-profit charities provide a unique service to individuals and communities. Connections is a special organization because it helps provide choices and empowerment to children and families who do not have the same opportunities as their peers. For these children and families, their lives take a turn because of choices that others make. Unfortunately, in these situations, the child affected has no choice, and he must take his situation and try to make the best of it. Connections serves as a place for these children and families who have faced this adversity and provides the tools and a community in which to find strength and hope for a brighter future. Connections provides a safe environment, and it assists in re-kindling the dreams for success in our communities’ youth and families.
