Derek Valdez,



As a Co-Chair of recreation it gives me life to be able to bring Christ Jesus to everyone through the thing that is very dear to me which is sports. To be able to play sports and be active in the name of Jesus truly brings me Joy!

As a Co-Chair of the recreation branch, the main thing that we do is run the intramural teams for St. Thomas and reach out to as many people as possible through sports and athletics. We also help with such things as watch parties for Broncos, help with organizing tail gates for Buffs and taking people to watch the rockies.

I am currently a Junior here at the University of Boulder, studying Molecular Biology and Pre-med. I hope eventually God willing to become an pediatric oncologist. Through the love and support of friends and family I am able to be in this position at this amazing University.
