Philip GrahamThe Shingletown Medical Center (SMC) would like to introduce its Board Member, Philip Graham. The SMC Board of Directors consists of nine (9) members. Officers of the Board are Lorene Jefferson, Board Chair, Mary Williamson, Vice Chair, Tami Diab, Treasurer, and Ed Garcia, Secretary. Members are Philip Graham, Linda Krueger, John Swanson, Cynthia Whitt and Nanette Zimmerman.

Philip Graham and his wife Gisela came to Shingletown over 27 years ago, and both have been pillars in the community ever since. Philip and Gisela met during his deployment to Germany while serving in the United States Air Force, and have been happily married for over 60 years. They have 4 children, 4 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren, so their lives are fairly busy during this holiday season.

Philip was raised in Santa Barbara, California and after high school enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1950 specializing in aircraft instrument repair and instructor training. After 6 years in Germany, he and Gisela returned to the U.S. in 1956 and were stationed at March Air Force Base in Southern California. In 1964 Philip was stationed back to Europe where he served for 3 years and then returned to Norton Air Force Base in 1967. After retiring from the Air Force in 1970 Philip went to work for the City of San Bernardino and went on to become their Senior Communication Technician.

Shingletown Medical Center and many other organizations have been fortunate to have Philip on their board of directors. Besides his 8 years on the SMC board he has also been involved with the Shingletown Citizen Support (SCS), Amateur Radio Club of Anderson (ARCA), Shasta Tehama Amateur Radio Club Emergency Service (ST-ARES), and Shingletown Amateur Radio Club (STARC).

Please join us in thanking Philip Graham for this dedicated support to the Shingletown Medical Center and his partnership with many of the other community organizations.
