    Jim Wiggins Promoted To Ride Captain
    Posted: 02/25/2015
    It's my privilege to announce the addition of our newest Ride Captain to the North Texas RC Team, Jim Wiggins. On Tuesday, Feb 24th, I was asked to give a presentation on the PGR to Jim's local Kiwanis group and used the opportunity to promote Jim in front of both his PGR and Kiwanis friends and family. Jim is an excellent addition to the Ride Captain corps and we can expect good things from him.
