Amigos de las Americas had a tremendous impact on my life. I worked with the nonprofit in as a Volunter in Azuay, Ecuador (1990), in Lempira, Honduras as a Field Supervisor (1993), as an Assistant Project Director in El Oro, Ecuador (1996), and as a Project Director in Villarrica, Paraguay (1998).
This was a fun (and funny) 11th grade tradition from 1990.

The family with my nephews Henry (baseball pitcher heading to University of Louisiana at Monroe) and Mason (baseball pitcher heading into his senior year at Washington and Lee University). And yes, they are tall, Henry is 6’7 and Mason is almost 6’6. For perspective, my wife (in the photo) is a little over 5’11.
Incredible to see some live baseball after months of zero sports. On the mound is Henry Shuffler (my nephew). He will be pitching for University of Louisiana at Monroe next year.
20 years ago I did a History Fellowship at Stanford University with Dr. Al Camarillo. Paul and Will were my main men during my time there.
He’s 6’5 (and change), she’s 5’7 (and still growing!).
