Vice President

Scott is our go-to guy. He helps make sure everything gets done, no matter what the task may be.  He is a great problem solver and never complains. Scott is our tall handyman and sometimes our "Goliath" in stories, as well as tasks.. But don't worry, he loves the kids too, and usually has balloons and/or candy with him.  Scott and Teresa experience Honduras for the first time together.   The first trip was with Carolina Cross Connection, and God has them sharing the love of Christ in public, as well as private orphanages.  The experience broke both of them.  They learned that they were not sent to "fix" the situations they experienced.  Much prayer and discernment started and many more trips to Honduras led them to realize that God just needed hands and feet. . hands and feet to share His love.  And so, the journey continues!

Fun Fact: Scott loves to be "That Guy."

Sam is from Honduras and lives in San Pedro Sula and has been a translator more many groups of missionaries over the years.  Teresa met Sam on a trip with Carolina Cross Connection that took them to Copan Ruinas.  While riding through the city streets a conversation began about God's calling on her life, as well as her husbands.  This calling was to support education in the rural and mountainous regions of Honduras.  God's vision was just beginning to be revealed.  Sam, however, said, "I would love to be a part of what God is going to do!"  And so, Sam became a part of the PEH Board and an integral part of praying and discerning God's Will for Project Education Honduras, Inc.  Sam is always willing to step in to help with anything and everything!  He also has a huge heart for God and serving Him.  We are so thankful for his friendship, his service, his willingness to do whatever is needed, and his voice as a part of the PEH team.

John Cyrus

Board Member

John is a leader in his church and is often times in the background taking care of anything that needs to be done.  He has expertise in many different areas including business, finances, and supervision.  Not only is he a leader, but he is a doer with a strong work ethic.  From painting to basic "handy-man" duties, there isn't anything that he can't do.  


Terry Hicks


Terry is our newest member of the board, and he made his first trip to Honduras in September of 2023.  He is one of those individuals that you just can't help but love.  He always has a smile on his face and an attitude of gratitude.  He is also a work and doer and a personality to fight for what is right.  After the first couple days in Honduras, Terry knew that God was nudging him to do more and was sad that he had not made the trip many years earlier.  Terry comes to the PEH Board with a variety of talents and skills.  The projects and specifically creating atmospheres that are safe for the children in Honduras to go to school is where his heart is.  He is in awe of the people and how they are able to use the resources they have to the fullest extent.  With this said, Terry's experience in sales will be an asset as we seek to ensure that all the money donated to PEH is utilized for His Glory and in an efficient manner.
