Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools
August 1, 2012

Prior to my recruitment to the Foundation Board, I had been both a personal donor and a corporate donor and had been a strong supporter of our local public school system despite the fact that most of our children attended parochial schools.

On a personal level, my wife and I lost a daughter in a car accident and wanted to remember her love for the Science Focus High School Program that she attended and have funded scholarships for Science Focus students and other Foundation projects.

As the current Board Chair for the past year (and the next year), my primary focus has been on financial sustainability, focus on a clear purpose and continuing to build and maintain a strong working relationship with school administration, staff and donors, always with a focus on doing what is best for the students of the district.

While possibly bias, I believe the Foundation is well run by dedicated staff, with an engaged Board and a history of doing good work.
