  • Stan Green, Susan Leslie and Tom Williams are taking up the oars and joining the efforts of the Camdenton Education Foundation.
    The not-for-profit Foundation continues "Steering the Course for the Future" for students and teachers at Camdenton R-III School District.
    Stan Green is a Vice President at First National Bank. Previously he spent 30 years in marketing and management at Wal-Mart store, district and market levels, working across six different states from the northeast to southern Texas. He is the proud parent of a junior at Camdenton High School (CHS) and two Camdenton graduates.
    "It is with great parent Laker Pride that I am being offered the opportunity to give back to deserving students by serving on the Foundation board. I’m looking forward to supporting the Foundation’s activities and giving back to community. And most importantly, honoring the proud generations of Lakers," Green said.
    The Foundation welcomes back Susan Leslie who has been an active district and community volunteer since moving to the lake area in 1991. In addition to teaching at Osage Beach Elementary, she also served there as PTO president. Most notably, Leslie devoted 12 years as a Camdenton’s Board of Education member, two of those as Vice President and two as President. She currently serves on the district’s Building Committee, in addition to the Lake of the Ozarks Food Bank Advisory Council. Her two children graduated from CHS.
    "It is an honor to be asked to serve on the Foundation board,” Leslie said. “The mission and goals of the Education Foundation seek to honor and reward the hard-working students, teachers and staff of our outstanding district. It will be exciting to take the Foundation to the next level with the help and support of our alumni and community partners." 
    Tom Williams, 1989 Camdenton Alumni, received his Business degree from University of Missouri and is the Human Resources Director at Lake Regional Health System. Williams currently serves on the Camdenton School Board, and acts as one of the two school board representatives on the Foundation Board. He is a past president of the Camdenton Chamber of Commerce and an active member of The Church as Osage Hills. Williams parents one Camdenton graduate, and two children currently at CHS.
    “The Foundation's support is a critical ingredient in meeting our district's mission, ‘To create a learning community that maximizes each individual’s performance for future success.’  I am honored for the opportunity to participate in the Foundation's efforts to support our District through scholarships and project grants for its students and teachers,” Williams said.
    In addition to awarding 65 scholarships since its inception in 2001, the Camdenton Education Foundation has served as a vital School District partner delivering supplemental funding for educational programs and activities aimed at broadening Camdenton students' and teachers' personal achievement.
