Reliability Team Engineer, United States
Bryan’s tragic loss of his son to a substance use disorder (SUD) fueled his passion and boundless energy to help his broader community. He founded a nonprofit, Stand up Newfound (SUN), the Central New Hampshire Newfound Area Drug Awareness Coalition. SUN’s mission is to work as a community to help eliminate substance abuse and misuse by providing information and community resources about awareness, prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery. Our newest hero has helped many families work through prevention, recovery, and sadly, sometimes loss through the nonprofit SUN. Bryan is also a committed member of the UV HOPE Team’s SUD task force.
In addition to helping people with SUD recovery resources, Bryan established football at Newfound Regional High School through the Friends of Newfound Football. This nonprofit helped build and maintain the field, run the press box and concession stand, and continues to ensure that football thrives at Newfound High.
