District Administrators

District Administrator: James Phelps

Assistant Administrator: Bob Carson

I live in Silver City and have been married to my wife Alma, for 49 years.  We have two sons Kevin and Brian.
Alma and I both graduated from Taos high school.  Alma graduated from Santa Fe Business College and I graduated from St, John’s College, Santa Fe, and MBA from Western NM University.
We moved to Silver City in 1982.  My careers include radio DJ, retail store manager, car salesman, bank Vice President, CFO of a non-profit organization and university professor.  Alma and I created our insurance agency 10 years ago, where we both work.
In Kiwanis, it’s been my honor to serve as club secretary and president, Lt. Governor and District Governor, and the best assignment, CKI District Administer.
My favorite service project is The Kiwanis Easter Egg Hunt in Silver City.  All our service partners including AKTION club, CKI, key club, builders club, and K-Kids participate. We hide over 6,000 eggs and around 500 children look for them.
