History:  The Foundation’s first meeting was April 5, 2005.  A start-up committee appointed fifteen directors who soon after adopted by-laws, a mission/purpose statement and a system of electing officers and directors.  The directors meet four times a year as a minimum.

Our work has drawn the interests of alumni, business and friends in general to make the Foundation successful.  Each year we add to the list of those who recognize the value in our work and want to help make a difference.  We now have two part-time liaison employees who help carry out our mission.
