He lives with his wife Amanda and his two sons, Walker and Daniel, in Ridgeland. We welcome Chief Bonds and his family to our Team and look forward to working with him. We will be scheduling an Introductory Peer Team Training Program soon in the Lower Coastal Region and we are seeking others to join our Team there.
