Dr. Charles Kemble
Dr. Charles Kemble, considered to be the founding father of San Antonio FCA, started the first Huddle at Sam Houston High School, the first Adult Huddle Chapter, and the Alamo Chapter, before serving on the San Antonio FCA board for more than 36 years. Kemble was elected as the executive board chair for San Antonio FCA in 1972, and hired its first staff member in 1982.
For 13 years, he and his wife, Peggy, spent their wedding anniversaries taking coaches and athletes from San Antonio to FCA National Conferences at Black Mountain (N.C.), Estes Park (Colo.), and Stephen F. Austin University (Texas). Kemble continued to promote, fundraise and volunteer on behalf of FCA for years.
