The Yorkville Educational Foundation officially welcomed two new directors to our Board at it’s August Board meeting.

Doug Williams joins us as a director with strong community ties.  He is a graduate of Yorkville High School and is the son of a Yorkville teacher and coach.  He is the Director of Sales at Earthmover Credit Union and has been involved with several local organizations, including the Montgomery Economic Development Corporation.  Doug has a passion for, and believes in, the transformative power of education. Doug has five young children, with two of them currently attending Yorkville schools.

Elizabeth Fegan also joined the Yorkville Educational Foundation and was confirmed during our August Board meeting.  Beth and her family moved from Oak Park to Yorkville over the summer.  Beth has 3 children that currently attend Yorkville schools.  Beth is a Partner at Hagens Berman law firm.  She brings a wealth of experience, including President of her children’s School Board in Oak Park, and treasurer of a women’s society.  Beth strongly believes in community involvement and wants to make an impact for the better of the community.

Please join us in congratulating our new members.

We also said goodbye to some incredibly talented and hard working board members:  Wolfgang Gruener, Sara Kubin and Ron Pieper.

Former Board members Dr. Garrett Katula and Shawn Schumacher were elected to the Board of Education for Yorkville CUSD 115 in May of this year.  We thank them for their contributions to the Board and look forward to collaborating with them on future projects!
