As an employee of Zions Bank and someone who loves helping kids in the community, Rock was the perfect person to teach financial literacy classes to the Club kids each week and to help them understand banking and personal finance. Since those early days of teaching finance classes, Rock has deepened his involvement by serving on the Club’s board of directors for the past ten years.
As a native of Provo, an alum of both Provo High and BYU, and an employee of Zions Bank for 39 years, Rock is deeply tied to the community. Serving on the Club’s board has given Rock the opportunity to serve his community and change the lives of young people.
“The Club is one of the very best places to make a difference in someone’s life. When you make a donation, you’ll change lives because the money goes directly to supporting kids in need.”
During his time on the board, Rock has had many opportunities to support all that the Club does for its members, ranging from homework help to structured play and physical education to hands-on STEM activities, but he knows there’s still more to do.
Rock’s dream for the Club is that it will one day reach the point where it can serve every child who needs a safe place to be and that there will never be any wait lists.
“I hope I can help make a difference,”said Rock. “I love serving on the board.”
Rock is a branch manager for Zions Bank, he and his wife TruAnn live in
Orem. They have five kids and fourteen grandchildren. Thank you for your service, Rock!
