Bill Snodgrass
Bill Snodgrass

Bill has been a resident of Camino for 28 years. He served as the El Dorado County Agriculture Commissioner, the Kern County Chief Deputy of the Registrar of Voters and served as a Captain in the U.S. Army receiving the Army Commendation Medal. His education includes a Bachelor of Science from Cal Poly and a Master’s degree in Public Administration from Cal State University Bakersfield. He has been a member of Kiwanis for over 30 years, a service club emphasizing youth. History, gardening, hiking in the Sierras, traveling and birding are his passions.

Parent involvement and participation are key to a student’s success and plans to find ways to encourage both. His position as a trustee on the Camino school board is both a privilege and an honor to which he intends to give his utmost.

Bob Van Gilder

I have been on Camino’s school board for 15 plus years. My commitment is to the kids. I graduated from San Jose State University with an Accounting degree. I am a Mortgage Broker by day. Both of our children, (Cheri is my bride), attended Camino from K-8 th grade. And both have excelled as adults. This school has been a blessing to our family.

I’ve witnessed wonderful things. Babies, promotions, graduations, retirements. I have witnessed not so wonderful things. I believe both important to growing as Board member and better man. Our family has been instrumental in Camino Cares, bringing the Book Fair, establishing non-profit status of PTO, countless hours prepping for the Apple Hill Harvest Run, serving on many committees. Camino School is a wonderful place. With amazing teachers and staff. I look forward to more wonderful things to come!
