What inspired you to join the CRMS Board of Trustees? I have supported CRMS for many years and felt, with my background, that I would be able to give back something to the school beyond money.

What do you value most about CRMS? I grew up at CRMS with a profound sense of ethics and morality which I’ve tried to follow throughout my life. I am impressed with the education that our students are offered with the emphasis on scholarship, and the basics of the same morals and ethics I experienced almost 60 years ago.
