“Being present will ALWAYS trump giving presents.”Van Overton, TEDxABQED 2015
Van Overton was born and raised in Albuquerque. He is a husband and father of two, and currently sits on the New Mexico PTA Board of Directors as the Male Participation chairperson. Having worked with both children and youth organizations city, state and nationwide, Van understands the need that exists among our country’s kids.
Having grown up in the South Broadway area he is all too familiar with the needs of the communities that make up our fair city. From the Foothills to the Westside he has talked with parents, educators and children about what concerns them each and every time the discussion comes back to education. That is why he feels that Duke City Dream Lab is needed.
