Bruce Wayne always had the philosophy of not just residing in a community but to attempt to make an impact and also serve. There has been an ongoing passion for sports and working with the youth. He went from taking my kids to practice to becoming the assistant coach on their soccer, softball and basketball teams. One year he was asked to be a parent volunteer to officiate games and that’s when he fell in love with officiating. Bruce Wayne started officiating both youth soccer and basketball. He then moved to officiating his favorite sport, football. Bruce was part of the California Football Official Association officiating both high school and youth games.

Bruce Wayne has been a football fan since the first grade when I watched the Oakland Raiders defeat the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl XI. He is a diehard Kansas City Chiefs fan since 1989. Bruce Wayne’s love and passion for football along with a desire to serve the community make him a natural fit to serve on this committee.
