From the Board: Greg Szczepan

Today’s post is an introduction from new DSAGSL board president Greg Szczepan. Greg is a long-time member of the DSAGSL family, but here are a few of his own words on his experience!

“Hi everyone, my name is Greg Szczepan (pronounced ZEPAN), and I am excited to be your new board president for the DSAGSL.  I first became aware of the DSAGSL when my wife Kim gave birth to our son, Jacob, who was born with Down syndrome back in 2000.

The DSAGSL sent over a welcome basket when Jacob was born which provided so much educational material about Down syndrome, and support that made us feel like we were not alone.

We also have two older children, Laura and Nick.  Over the years, we have participated in many events supporting the DSAGSL, like SUDS, trivia night and golf just to name a few, but I thought I needed to do more so I became a board member working on the finance committee back in 2015.

A few of my hobbies include following the St. Louis Cardinals, playing golf and just hanging out with my family.  I hope to meet all of you at an upcoming DSAGSL event, so please SIGN UP TODAY!”

A huge thanks to Greg for sharing his story!
