“It is a privilege to serve and support schools through School Connect. Bringing all facets of the community together to help educators enrich the lives of children and open doors of opportunity is meaningful and important community-building. Please find a way to connect with us and join this effort.”

Dr. Jennifer Johnson, Public School Liaison,
Grand Canyon University

“I serve on the School Connect Board because their core principles of service, community, faith, education, and collaboration mesh perfectly with my beliefs. I am privileged to support an organization that puts the needs of children at the front of every decision and action.”

Dr. Carol Lippert, Assistant Vice President for K-12 Outreach and Support,
Grand Canyon Education

“It has been an honor to serve on the School Connect Board. It is an amazing experience to watch schools, businesses, faith partners and the government all working together for the benefit of our children for a better future.”

Linda Livermore, Community Volunteer

“School Connect is the framework that connects our community and schools together to help ensure every child will receive the support they deserve, and I’m honored to be part of that work.”

Heidi Vega, Director of Communications,
Arizona School Board Association

“What we know is that love for children, schools and communities is not singular and being in a relationship with additional individuals is not exclusive. There is room for everyone at the table. The systems that School Connect has built offer an endless multiplier effect allowing these relationships to be nurtured and grow.”

Dr. Betsy Hargrove, Superintendent,
Avondale Elementart School District

“Everyone in every community has value within that community! This is the heartbeat of School Connect. School Connect provides a tangible platform to help faith communities and local businesses build relationships with Administrators and Teachers. It teaches the community to lean in and listen to the immediate needs and the future dreams of local schools, while providing an opportunity for those who may have never known of those needs to be an avenue for change as they contribute from the resource they bring to the table.”

Dean Kuest, Glendale Campus Pastor,
Central Christian Church

“Education is at its best when supported by the “three- legged stool” of educators, parents, and community. As a member of the board, my aim is to assist in setting School Connect policy and direction in its mission as catalyst and facilitator in bringing all three groups – school by school – into collaborative partnership.”

Ric Pringle, Retired,
Attorney at Law

“I’m thrilled to be part of the amazing and emerging story about students, schools, and communities flourishing as businesses, government, churches, and non-profits partner with our schools. School Connect has been the catalyst for me joining in this compelling story, and it can be yours too.”

Dr. Mike Richardson, Faculty,
College of Theology, Grand Canyon University

“When you engage with School Connect, you engage with an entire community. It’s business partnerships, it’s families, it’s schools, it’s everybody coming together to make life better for our students.”

Nedda Shafir, Communications and Marketing Consultant,
Shafir Consulting

“Nothing matters more to the future of our country than our next generation. I invest in School Connect because it is the strongest movement I have found that is strengthening our next generation.”
