with his wife purchased his Columbus dealership in 2005. Carpino

his career. Camp is a hands-on volunteer, participating in recovery
meetings and leading Bible study groups at local correctional
facilities and his own church. He is an advisory board member for the

an active member of his community. He is a board member of the
Fremont Area Community Foundation, The Bridge, the Fremont
Family YMCA and Friends of the Fremont Area Parks. He also serves
on the University of Nebraska's President's Advisory Council.
