Andy Stone of Posen is the outgoing president and will continue on the Executive Committee as Past President.
“Being part of this foundation has connected me to the dreams and needs of our community and surrounding counties. It’s been amazing to see what people can do,” says Young-Engstrom. “I cannot wait to see what will be done in 2024. So much work goes into this foundation and the benefits are long lasting. Everyone wins!”
