Newest Board Members
Faces Without Places welcomed Patrick Frambes and Tamara Vest to the Board on August 4th!
Patrick is a CPA and Senior Accountant with Barnes Dennig. He was recommended by recently resigned FWP board member and colleague Rob Ford. He's been very involved in his community and has a passion for education. He joined the children this summer at their movie premiere and plans to be very involved with FWP/PC.
Tamara is a Business Systems Analyst with Express Scripts. She has been raising funds and awareness for our children since 2005. She is extremely passionate about youth and their futures. The day after she was added to the board, she hosted an event at the Polo Grille, raising nearly $600 and boxes and boxes of school supplies!
We are extremely happy to have both join us in our mission to keep homeless children stable in school. We were sad, but celebratory to recognize Sandy Downing who retired from the Board after her term limits were reached at 8 years of service! Sandy is a board member who made a point of spending time with the kids as well, supporting children in after school and summer programs for the last 8+ years. She always went above and beyond to create opportunities for children. She will be missed.
