New Education Foundation forms three committees

In its first official public meeting held last night (Oct. 20) at the Pulaski County School Board meeting room, the newly formed Pulaski County Public Schools Education Foundation discussed at length, further steps to take to make it a viable organization.
To elect officers, the nonprofit group first met on Sept. 15. It includes Jeff Bain, Phyllis Bishop, Ron Chaffin, Tom McCarthy, Kevin Meredith, Bill Parker, Paul Phillips, Joe Sheffey, William Smith, Chris Stafford, Don Stowers and John Weinrich.
Ron Chaffin, then vice president, called for nomination of the Foundation’s president when its president, Mark Rader, resigned following his appointment to a position of hospital administrator in Georgia.
Joe Sheffey nominated Ron Chaffin. The motion to close nominations was seconded and approved and the group unanimously voted to elect Ron Chaffin as president of the Foundation. Chaffin’s nomination left the vice president seat open and Bill Parker was voted to take that position.
In last night’s meeting, the Foundation’s treasurer, Chris Stafford, reported to the Foundation that the committee has voted to accept National Bank to handle its checking account after looking at the best rates and “leverage of what we could give them to get us a good deal.”
Foundation president Ron Chaffin was unsure what the Foundation’s operating budget was saying, “We’re just getting started. We still have some legal papers to take care of, first.” Tom McCarthy reported that the IRS has already given the Foundation a tax- exempt status.
To help develop the Foundation, Chaffin identified 3 committees:
The Finance/Fund Management which consists of Chris Stafford, chair; Bill Parker, auditor; Joe Sheffey, Jeff Bain and Linda McGee.
Publicity & Website Development is in the hands of by Kevin Meredith, chair; John Weinrich, William Smith, Carole Pratt and Don Stowers.
Scholarship Program is handled by Phyllis Bishop, chair; Paul Phillips, Ron Chaffin, Lewis Pratt and Tom McCarthy.
During the dinner meeting, School Superintendent Don Stowers passed around copies of informational sheets on the Chesterfield (Va.) Public Education Foundation which was founded in 1989; regarded as the 4th largest in Virginia, serving 58,000 students, 64 schools and has an annual budget of $594.5 million.
Stowers didn’t feel Pulaski would model its foundation after Chesterfield’s. “We’re just gathering information right now, but we’ll create our own programs,” he said.
The next meeting is Monday, Nov. 30.
