For the last two and half years, I worked at Foundation for Appalachian Ohio (FAO) on scholarships and development. I’m proud of all I accomplished there, including assisting with, and securing a $4 million grant for the retention and recruitment of the K-12 workforce in Appalachian Ohio...

The Springfield Foundation awarded a $5,000 grant for the "South Charleston Historic District" mural in 2021, but the pandemic delayed the project on several fronts (inability to get the wall tuckpointed in a timely basis, lack of person-to-person contact with a recommended muralist, etc.). The Springfield Foundation then extended the deadline for the project to June of 2022 and it is now completed!
