Paul Ross & Lan Huong
Choreographer: Brenda Buuck
I’ve been blessed to have a thread run throughout my life. That thread is STM and included – Being baptized, going to kindergarten / elementary school, Mom taught for 20 years there, was part of the team that started the extended care program, coached track and basketball (girls and boys), my children were baptized and attended school there, President of the Men’s Club, two terms on the school board, Chairman of the Festival, KC and Eucharistic Minister. Was able to evade demonstrating my lack of dancing skills for past couple of years – until now. What a ride. I’ll always have been and will always be grateful for the opportunities, good times and memories that STM has provided.
Oh yea – I went to Catholic High School (past President of the CHS Men’s Club this year), I’m an LCSW who owns / operates psychiatric facilities, very happily married to Wendy Ross, have two awesome kids (Ashley 18 and Michael 21), am the youngest of three siblings, lucky to still have my parents around and love fishing, golf, anything involving working / volunteering with people. Again, counting my blessings daily.
Lan and her husband of 14 years, Loc, have two boys. Lucas is in the fifth grade and Logan is in kindergarten at St. Thomas More.
