He also collaborated closely with the District throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, such as opening the Boys & Girls Club of Fond du Lac to provide services to local youth on remote learning days. The Club provides a year-round supportive, caring and stable environment for local youth.
The Fond du Lac School District in partnership with the Fond du Lac Education Association select an individual or group each school year to recognize as a Friend of Education.
