Board of Directors

The Post Rock Community Foundation is operated by a volunteer board made up of local members. Their collective dedication, knowledge, and passion for the Post Rock area are an important part of our service to the communities we serve. We serve communities in the USD 298 and USD 299 area including Barnard, Beverly, Denmark, Hunter, Lincoln, Lucas, Luray, Sylvan Grove & Vesper. Because we are a county wide organization, we strive to have representation on our board from different Post Rock communities.
