Las Trampas Welcomes New Board President!

Our new Board President Charles Henry is not your everyday, ordinary guy.  A graduate of the University of Southern California and University of California Hastings Law School, Chuck served for 32 years in the Public Defender’s Office of San Joaquin County as a Senior Trial Attorney and Chief Deputy Attorney.

But don’t be fooled by his impressive resume and professional exterior. Chuck has quite the adventurous past, having served as military intelligence in Korea. “I served for 13 months during 1970 into 1971, briefing the General Staff. Some were very famous and served in important, historical operations, including the D-Day invasion in France on June 6, 1944.”  During a portion of his tour, he also briefed the US Ambassador to Korea and the Deputy Ambassador.  “It was certainly an exciting and learning experience.”

He has also served on the boards of many legal organizations, including Inns of Court Executive Committee, San Joaquin County Board of Governors, and chair of the San Joaquin County Judicial Liaison Committee.

“I joined the Board of Directors (at Las Trampas) in late 2012,” said Chuck. During his reign on our board, he has been a major contributor to our Infrastructure Committee, overseeing planning for our upcoming campus renovation.

“I learned about Las Trampas by attending two or three “What’s in Our Hat” events at the Lafayette Park Hotel and Spa.  We were guests of Eric Rudney,” said Henry.

“What gratifies me the most about our work is that we are providing an avenue and opportunity for our clients to lead fuller lives in their homes, at work and in the community,” he said. “Also gratifying is witnessing so much united and conscientious effort by staff, volunteers, Las Trampas leadership and our Board in undertaking the remodel of our Main Campus.”

“I am committed (as well as the rest of the Board) to completing our new Campus and expanding our programs.”
