***With the conclusion of a successful Rock the School House fundraiser this past September, our current director of foundation operations, Jon Ruzek, notified the foundation board that he is concluding the independent contract with our organization at the end of the calendar year to focus on family needs and other professional opportunities. Our board thanks Jon for his efforts over the last year and looks forward to working together during the transition to a new director.
