Shane Gring: Shane is an optimistic individual dedicated to the organizations and causes closest to his heart.

He does not consider it a good day unless he’s left the world better than the way he found it. Forever indebted to family and friends for education, opportunities, and support, Shane constantly seeks avenues to further himself physically, mentally, and spiritually. Shane has a philosophy: life is too short and blessings are too great to not give back.
BOULD: BOULD was founded after locating the gap between what schools are teaching and what employers and clients actually want and realizing the possibility of leveraging that opportunity in order to add value to their communities. Currently BOULD partners with affordable housing builders, like Habitat For Humanity, to transform housing projects into hands-on, interactive learning laboratories to help transition architecture and construction professionals into the green building industry. BOULD’s tuition-based, community-focused training program equips professionals with the experience and skills they need to launch green careers, while simultaneously funding and building energy-efficient long-lasting homes for low-income families.
