How did you get involved with Children’s Scholarship Fund and the Young Leaders Board?

I believe that a strong education from an early age is the primary building block for a child’s success. Many of the problems we are dealing with in society today stem from a lack of access to education for many of the children in our country. This is an important issue to me, and when my friend Eric Ferson told me of an opening on the Young Leaders Board, I jumped at the opportunity to join.

What is your favorite part of being involved with CSF and the Young Leaders and what do you hope to learn or gain from being a member?

My favorite part of being involved with the CSF and the Young Leaders is working with like-minded individuals toward the important task of granting children access to education. I hope my fellow board members and I will develop strong relationships that will allow us to work effectively for the CSF, and I hope to learn better ways to help the CSF succeed.
