GEM Environmental would like to welcome aboard our newest team member, Wayman Trujillo! Wayman is our new Member at Large.
Wayman was born and raised in the outdoors of Prescott Az. He went to Prescott High School and after graduation, attended Oklahoma Panhandle State University. As a rodeo scholarship recipient, Wayman was part of the OPSU Rodeo Team. He graduated in 2015 with a BA in social studies/ political science. Wayman’s goal was to attend law school and pursue a joint law degree and masters in land conservation, however, his love for being outside lead him to work as a wild land firefighter, cowboy, hunting guide and river guide. In these pursuits, he has witnessed firsthand the importance of STEM education, from fire ecologists to hydrology engineers
“The public lands depend on educated STEM students.” -Wayman Trujillo
Wayman enjoys spending time with his family and passing on his love of nature to his young son. He is still involved in rodeo, and is an active team roper. He currently works as a Title Examiner for Empire West Title Agency, working throughout Yavapai County. His passion and skills, also keep him busy with his side business and hobby, Wayman Trujillo Photography. Between family, work, photography, and team roping, Wayman also loves to mountain bike. Last month, he completed The Whiskey Off-road, a 30-mile extreme mountain bike event!
As a new board member, Wayman plans to use his community connections to help spread the mission of GEM. The satisfaction of helping GEM, in our conservation pursuits and getting people involved in our STEM programs, is what he looks forward to the most. Thank you for joining our team, Wayman!
