Chuck Lia - My wife Lisa and I currently live in Alpharetta, Georgia, a beautiful suburb about a half hour north of Atlanta.  I have lived in Atlanta for the past 15 years and truly love the quality of life and the people here.  I have five children (four daughters and one son caught in the middle, including a set of identical twins) and seven grandchildren (five grandsons and two granddaughters).  My daughters and their families all live in Orange County and my son and his family live in Minnesota.  Thankfully everyone is doing well and, like everyone else I am sure, I am thrilled with and proud of all of them.  What a blessing they all are.
Someone asked on the website to share what our one claim to fame is.  The one thing that stands out to me is that my oldest grandson, Trent, and I were the United States Tennis Association’s #1 ranked Grandfather/Grandson Doubles team in America in 2010.  In fact, we reached the National Championship match in four consecutive National Grandfather/Grandson Doubles National Tournaments.  (We were also ranked #3 nationally in 2009 and #2 in 2011.).  Not a big deal mind you, but fun all the same, and Trent and I will never forget the wonderful memories we made as we played on the grass courts, clay courts, and indoor courts in Boston, and on the hard courts in La Jolla at the national tournaments, and toured museums and attractions and great restaurants around those areas in our free time.  Again, what a blessing.
My primary interests today revolve around using my tennis background to work with inner-city teenage boys without a father’s influence in their lives.  (I don’t know if you know I was a teaching tennis pro directly out of college and coached high school basketball and tennis for over twenty years.).  Atlanta is the most active tennis city in America which makes it very conducive to using tennis as a vehicle to connect with young men here and it’s highly rewarding to work with them.  In addition, through the encouragement of the local tennis association and the support of another foundation, in 2019 I have a book coming out titled “REAP” Kids - Building Kids Who Are Responsibly Excellent in Academic, Athletic, Artistic, and Personal Pursuits.  My success over the past decade with these inner-city kids has given me a platform to speak to others who work in similar environments and the book is an outgrowth of that.
My wife is a competitive Masters 5K, 10K, and Half-Marathoner (she won the Masters division of the 2016 Atlanta Halloween Half-Marathon), a better than average tennis player, and an avid reader.  In my mind she is just a star across the board.  I am heavily involved in birding (I particularly enjoy songbirds) and we have so many specialty bird feeders out in the back yard it is almost like the Atlanta airport around here.  Great fun though and very relaxing to watch these beautiful birds come and go all day.  My wife and I both also enjoy gardening and deeply appreciate the beauty that comes along with that hobby.  I also read heavily across a number of disciplines; but in particular theology, brain and neuroscience, economics, and sports/coaching.  I still own a health and wellness company.  I am also an ordained Ruling Elder in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) and attended Westminster Theological Seminary before I moved to Atlanta.  In 2017 I was honored as a Colson Fellow by the Colson Center for Christian Worldview.
