I was an original board member when SEF was formed in 1986. I helped in forming SEF to help make our schools stronger and more effective by supporting programs and the students in our district. Our funding emphasizes special programs, learning opportunities and scholarships for Snohomish School District students and teachers. I currently serve on the Sponsorship and Endowment Committees. I grew up in Montana and graduated from Montana State University and I have been retired for 4 years. My wife and I have two daughters who are both teachers.
