Introducing our New Board of Directors.

We are honored and excited to introduce our 3 new Board of Directors; Trey Morris, Mike Wawczak, and Mark Morrison.

Trey has spent 25+ years in the world of broadcasting and advertising.  He is a media consultant, professional speaker, and restaurant entrepreneur. Trey has been married for 25 years to his wife Rebecca, his Baylor sweetheart, and father to Haley and Jordan. Trey has been friends with Joy & Tait Cruse for over 25 years. He has served as Co-Chair for the III Forks Golf Classic for the last 5 years and has a personal passion to help eradicate childhood cancer. 

We are honored to have Mike Wawczak join the TeamConnor Childhood Cancer Board of Directors. He is the Regional EVP for Dallas Commercial Banking with Origin Bank.  Mike and his family have a personal connection to childhood cancer as well.  He and his family are a true gift for many who are walking the journey of childhood cancer and he recently shared with us the following.  “My family recently lost a child to cancer.  If through TeamConnor I can assist – in any small manner – so that another person does not have to go through the same experience  and if through TeamConnor, the group can assist with research and cures to fight childhood cancer, then count me in.”  

Mark Morrison has been friends with Connor’s parents, Joy and Tait Cruse, for over 25 years, and knew Connor his entire life.  Mark and his wife were very involved with Connor and his family during his struggle with cancer, and have both been heavily involved in the various functions of TeamConnor. He is the Vice President of Technology and Innovation for Purple Land Management in Fort Worth. Mark is excited to join the Board to continue contributing to pediatric cancer research through an outstanding organization, run by outstanding people. 

Thank you all for volunteering your leadership to TeamConnor’s Boards of Directors.

Childhood cancer is not one disease entity, but rather a spectrum of different malignancies. Cancers found in children are biologically different from those seen in adults.
