As President of the Teachers Association of Lee County and a member of the Board for the Foundation for Lee County Public Schools, I am constantly amazed at the amount and quality of the work they do for our Lee Co. public schools. In discussing other local foundations with my colleagues across the state, I become increasingly grateful that our foundation seems to be head and shoulders above others.

One example is the work they did in helping us secure and manage a $250,000 grant from the National Education Association Foundation targeting "Closing the Achievement Gap". The Foundation's willingness to serve as the fiscal agent made this amazing opportunity possible.

I am proud to be a part of the Foundation Board and their phenomenal staff.
