As President of the Danville Public School Foundation, I want to extend a warm and affectionate greeting to all Danville public school alumni, teachers and administrators, both past and present, students, parents and Foundationdonors and friends. The Foundation’s purpose is to promote, aid and encourage educational purposes in support of and connected with Danville public schools. The Foundation is a separate entity from Danville School District #118; and, consequently, the Foundation is responsible for raising its own funds to operate and carry out its mission. The Foundation is proud to continue to help provide new, creative and innovative educational opportunities for the 6,200 children attending Danville Public Schools. In the 2011-2012 school year, we were able to provide over $40,000 in grants and programs. To continue its work, the Foundation needs your help and financial support. Foundation Board Members are community volunteers who have graciously given their time and energy. It is an honor and privilege for me to serve as President of the Board. This experience has given me an opportunity to witness the depth of commitment demonstrated by our Danville public school teachers and administrators, and to also appreciate the efforts by and the achievements of our current Danville public school students. The accomplishments of our students throughout the entire history of the Danville public school system are truly special and unparalleled by school district of similar size. Thank you for your help and financial support.
