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

I agreed to join the board of the Lucille Rader Education Foundation because I am passionate about the opportunity that a college education can provide. I also recognize the enormous challenge that financing an education poses to most families. I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to help students gain access to a college education.
