Donald Nydam – Chairman of the Board
As Chairman of the Board of Mountain View Wholesale, Don is a driving force in the company, providing leadership, vision, and mentorship for the Executive Team.
Recognizing the need for inner-city colleges in America, Don prayed about how he could bring about change to help underserved young men and women. After forming and leading Community Christian College in Redlands, he is actively pursuing buildings and partners across America to bring more colleges to the locations of these students who have slipped through the cracks and dropped out of school.
As chairman and co-owner of Totally Kids, a hospital for children with special needs, Don’s mission is to help young patients and their families be as happy and normal as possible during long-term care living, and to make strides they never thought possible.
Don’s belief that God has a plan for everything we do has influenced his family, friends and church, and he has become a respected leader in the community.
By giving of himself and sharing with others, Don has made a difference for so many good things to happen in so many lives.
