This year’s scholarship foundation board is headed by chairwoman Jane McGeehan; treasurer Linda Schaeffer; and secretary Joanne McIntyre. Other board members are Patti Breidenbach, Cheryl Folk, Trisha Howell, and Pat Johns. AAUW branch president, Cindy Gould, acts as liaison with the entire branch membership.
