New Board Chair

It is with much gratitude that the Board thanks outgoing chair Carol Rearick for four wonderful years of great leadership. Under her guidance the Foundation has grown and is well poised for moving forward in the next three years with George D. Goodman as our new chair. George, a Trustee since 2012, brings much experience in the world of philanthropy to the helm.

We also bid farewell to R. Daniel Musser, III, who has served the board diligently for 17 years. We shall miss his guidance and humor. The Board of Trustees has elected James Murray to join them in the important mission of guiding the Foundation. Welcome Jim!
