Meet Our People
KC Gonzales is The Children’s Hour Inc’s board President, as well as a licensed teacher and currently leads the IT department at Alvarado Elementary School. She is the mom of two daughters and brings her technology knowledge and skills to our board, and is a great problem solver and strategist.
Evan Moulson is the board Vice-President, and has been involved with the Children’s Hour since he was 11 years old when he was invited to help out with a show at the Rio Grande Corn Maze. Thankfully, he was able to successfully navigate the maze and made it back to become a longtime cohost and engineer for the Children’s Hour. He now lives in Boston, Mass., USA with his wife, Hannah, and the apple of their eyes: their cat, Batman the Wondercat. Even though he lives across the country, he still drops by to say hello, watch the levels, and help Katie out on the (mixing) board when he’s in Albuquerque. As a member of the Children’s Hour Board, Evan is involved with fundraising and governance.
Molly Madden is a retired school teacher, a regular volunteer at the Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Project, and is now a grandmother. She is a master of good governance and is currently chairing our governance committee.

He feels passionate about doing positive things within the community and feels honored to serve as a board member for a show like The Children’s Hour that educates and entertains both children and adults in marvelous and beneficial ways.
