There are so many projects we examine, but few have had as much of an impact within our community. By taking pride in the projects we have chosen and delivered in our community, we will see dividends in the very near future. By investing in our community, others will also see benefit.
“While working professionally as an educator and teacher, I always spent my after-work time volunteering in Summit to help our children. I believe education is very important and that every child deserves a good education. That’s what makes our community strong.”
