Valerie White is a member of Corvallis First United Methodist Church, and has lived in the area since 1994. Valerie attended and graduated with a BS from OSU (decades ago!). She has two sons; one a graduate of U of O and the other currently attending SOU in Ashland. “College Students are an important piece of the fabric of our community,” says Valerie.
A long-time community (not church-appointed) member of the board, Brian Lee brings his expertise to bear on keeping the PCs and wireless internet running at WestM. Besides fixing home and small office PCs, he is an independent, board-certified toxicologist who consults primarily on consumer products. Brian is a member of First Congregational UCC where he participates in choir, badminton, photography, and various other activities.
Brian says, “WestM is the type of student spiritual community that I would like to have found when I was a college student. Hopefully my efforts will continue to make this available.”
