Touching Lives of Hundreds of Thousands of Students and Teachers
"I served as a Trustee of the Foundation from 2005 through 2010 and was honored to serve as its chair in 2008 and 2009. Since then, I have watched with great interest how the Foundation’s strong leadership and staff continue touching the lives of hundreds of thousands of students and teachers.
