I have just completed my first year as a PNLV Board Member. Over the last eight years I observed PNLV steadily evolve into the fine organization it has become today. With the possibility of establishing new Promise Neighborhoods in Easton and Bethlehem, I welcomed the opportunity to join the Board in its efforts to build off the successes in Allentown.
2. What about the Promise Neighborhoods mission and the work that the organization does in the Lehigh Valley community is most important to you?
The overall physical and social wellbeing of our students is most important to me. We know that healthy students perform better in school. It is important to identify and marshal those unique health-related assets in each of our neighborhoods, so that no child is limited in their ability to learn due to lack of proper diagnosis and/or lack of proper medical treatment.
3. What is the one thing that you want residents of our region’s three Promise Neighborhoods to know about the organization’s volunteer Board of Directors and its commitment to its mission?
The PNLV Board of Directors is committed to developing an equitable approach to ensuring that all of our neighborhoods become the kind of places that enable all children and families to succeed and thrive.
