Why it is important to me to be involved with the Oregon Tech Foundation

When I relocated to Klamath Falls in early 1994, it was obvious that the Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT) was a very important part of the Klamath Falls Community. During the subsequent years it became increasingly obvious to me that OIT was a special school that provides an outstanding educational environment to dedicated students typically seeking well-paying and relevant technology oriented careers. Since joining the Board of Directors of the Oregon Tech Foundation in early 2014, I have continued to be increasingly impressed by the talented students and learning environment at OIT. I want to be part of and contribute to the success of this impressive educational institution.
