Board Member-George Saunders

Maggie, my wife, our daughter Laurie and son George came to Grand Terrace in 1965.  A friend of mine had a small plane that he volunteered to take me house hunting by air flight.  I located a strip of green land, with large lots.  When I drove down Pico St. there was a house for sale.  Across the street were orange groves as far as the eye could see. We raised our kids in Grand Terrace and expect to stay here.

I graduated from Bellflower H.S. and went to UCLA School of Engineering on a track scholarship.  Received my B.S. in Aeronautical Engineering and then proceeded to the UCLA School of Business for a MBA in Operations Research and Production Management.

The majority of my business career was with TRW.  I worked with Air Force personnel on the Minuteman and Peacekeeper Ballistic Missile projects.  Our support for the Air Force was System Engineering and Technical Direction.  From 1965 to 2000 our base of operations was Norton Air Force Base.  I thoroughly enjoyed the time working on complex missile projects.
