Being involved in the construction of schools for over 35 years has afforded me the opportunity to become actively involved in the creation of facilities that have a lifelong effect on the well-being, enrichment, growth and future of children.  Every school we build, renovate,   modernize helps children become better citizens by being able to learn better.  Being a member of the Board of the Education Foundation allows me to participate in helping even more children, as well as being able to spread the word of the good work the Foundation does to my peers.  By helping these children, we are growing our future workforces, as well as our future. It is an honor to be part of this group.
