Why did you agree to serve on the Lucille Rader Education Foundation Board?

I was introduced to the Foundation's Board by Alvin Lamarre, who had taught and coached three of our four sons while they attended Crespi Carmelite High School. As a strong believer in Catholic education, as well as the benefits of extracurricular involvement, the Mission Statement of the Lucille Rader Educational Foundation resonated with me. I feel the Lucille Rader story is one that has significant relevance in our church today as members recognize the needs of the community and take over leadership from our ordained leaders. I am honored to serve on this Board and look forward to furthering its goals and objectives.
