He has held leadership roles at St. John’s Episcopal Church, the Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley, two City of McAllen Zoning boards and Beta Gamma Sigma. He first became involved with Good Sam as a mentor and a tutor and currently leads the local Advisory Board. Bob has a heart for the South Texas children. “When I was asked to join the board, I knew that God was inviting me to serve Him through the children of Good Samaritan,” Bob said.
“Bob is not only a major asset to the families who are honoring him, but to the Good Sam community as well,” said GSCS CEO, Jill Oettinger.”He really embodies the parable of the Good Samaritan with his passion for children and is a major contributor in helping us fulfill our mission to help youth overcome the impact of poverty.”

In recognition of the gift, GSCS will rename the “University of Texas – Rio Grande Valley” classroom the “Bob Morehead University of Texas – Rio Grande Valley” classroom in honor of Mr. Morehead.
