The CCKCF Board Members are people from the Cheyenne County community who care about the future of our communities. If you are interested in volunteering for CCKCF, talk with any board member or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I joined the St Francis Community Foundation Board in 2007 and have been a part of many changes. It's an honor to serve, establishing CCKCF as an important part of our communities. My vision is working to build a strong foundation and leave a solid legacy for generations to come.
My parents and grandparents instilled in all the kids that we must give back. I want to help make a difference in our community and build a brighter future for the next generation. Everyone will benefit if Cheyenne County continues to thrive and prosper.
My goal in serving on the foundation board, since its inception, is to encourage others to consider Cheyenne County as one of their heirs, thereby making a perpetual investment in the future of their community.
Cheyenne County, Kansas has provided an opportunity for me and my family to live, work and grow. Therefore, I want to be a part of preserving and enriching these opportunities for others here. The CCKCF provides a foundation for this development for all.
I was approached about being on the foundation board, and the timing and the situation seemed right for me. I believe we all the qualities to contribute back to our communities, and this is an opportunity for me to do so.
Over the years, I have enjoyed being a part of the Community Foundation, and watching it grow from the original vision. The community giving continues to build the quality of life for all citizens of Cheyenne County, now and for generations to come. Together we have built community endowments, addressed needs through grantmaking, including scholarships; and provided leadership on key issues. I encourage others to be part of this vision.
We are fortunate to have CCKCF in place to make life in Cheyenne County even better. My goal as a board member is to promote our community for future residents to enjoy.
Having grown up in Cheyenne County and returned "home", I want to do my part to encourage the next generation to return "home". I feel CCKCF will play and important role in making Cheyenne County a "home" to come back to!
Carl Werner served on the Community Foundation board since it's inception and has been through the organization through all of its changes. He served USD 297- St. Francis Public Schools for the majority of his lengthy career as an educator and administrator. Carl's love of education and the USD 297 school system is what prompted him to establish the St. Francis Educational Foundation Fund.
While Carl retired from the school and CCKCF board in 2020, he is forever an honorary member of our board.
