?My heart remains to be in Scott County. My parents raised me to know the importance of giving to and helping others. I was raised for the better part of my life here, and it is where my husband and I reside and are raising our daughter.
I believe in philanthropy and making a difference in our community. I also want to set a good example for our daughter, so that she realizes the importance of the Scott County Community Foundation and the good that comes from this wonderful organization. SCCF is making a difference every single day in our community!?
