Dave is the newest member of the board. His family was in Nehalem over a hundred years ago and he can trace his interest in the region from stories his grandparents told about that time. In addition to his NVHS duties, he has also served on the Wheeler City Council for the past 12 years although he is perhaps better known for his steamboat, the Captain Bell.
