I am excited to be a part of  this very necessary foundation. Though I had a 45 year banking career that kept  me very connected to this community and surrounding communities, I can honestly say, as the director of Heartland Community Foundation I am even more engaged with and  passionate about the future of Ellis County, along with that of Trego and Rooks Counties. In visiting with folks in all communities within the Heartland footprint, I am learning more everyday about the the needs and visions you all have for this area and for the overall preservation of rural America. There is no doubt in my mind the foundation plays and will continue to play a very important role in those needs and visions. You are all great stewards of your organizational dollars and we at Heartland want to do all we can to increase those dollars allowing you to grow and focus on quality of life issues in your areas.
