Norma Iris Reyes

Community Coordinator

I was born February 26 in El Progreso, Honduras, I completed my primary studies at the Jose Trinidad Cabanas school and then my secondary studies at the Notre Dame Institute, both educational institutions in El Progreso. Later I entered the UNAH and studied Economics. At the age of 25, I married the young Juan Ramon Archila Molina in 1984, with whom I had two children: Juan Carlos and Nora Ibeth. I joined the church on April 6, 2011 and since then I have had various callings…young women counselor, Relief Society counselor, institute teacher. I am currently the coordinator for Bountiful Children in the Progreso stake. One of my greatest characteristics is service to others, creativity and good cheer for everything in which both the members and the leaders need my help, I support the missionaries by accompanying them on visits, giving messages at baptisms, and serve them and accompany them in their missionary work.

Bountiful's Community Coordinators

Community coordinators serve with Bountiful as volunteers. They organize other local volunteers and together conduct screenings, train families, distribute locally-purchased nutritional supplements, and follow up on infant development.
