Strong schools are the gateway to a strong community. I became involved in SEF in 1996 because I believe education is truly the key to helping our students become productive citizens. All of the Foundationâ€™s programs help to enrich the lives of students, â€œone student at a time... one gift at a time.â€ Imagine how much more we can do with your help. I am currently involved in the Classroom Grant program which supports innovative and creative ideas in the classroom that expand opportunities for students in all of our schools in grades K-12. I attended WA State University and graduated from the University of Idaho College of Law in 1972. I currently own a law practice here in Snohomish.
