Roy Woodruff - Member at Large
Hi, my name is Roy Woodruff and I am currently serving as one of the two Members At Large on the Advisory Board. This is my second year volunteering with the BPO and my first year on the Advisory Board. My son, Dalton, plays the trumpet and is currently in the Marching Band, Wind Ensemble, and Jazz Band, and volunteers in the United Sound program. In addition, he plays the piano. I am married to Debbie Woodruff, who is also a BPO volunteer, and have one older son, Derek, who is also musically talented and plays the drums, saxophone, and guitar. Even though my musicality is limited to “singing in the shower”, I am fascinated by the Band Programs offered here at Campo Verde. I was a self proclaimed “band-aid” in high school and hung with the Dobson High Marching Band students, so I understand the hard work involved and the time commitment our students are making. I have a special place in my heart for the United Sound program as I spent 15 years working with adults and children with special needs in a previous career and have seen first-hand the benefits of programs whose major purpose and goal is integration and instilling a sense of community and friendship. I currently work at Microchip Technology as a Software Engineer. In my spare time, I enjoy working with the Boy Scouts (where I have held numerous leadership positions), researching my family’s genealogy, and traveling.
