Foundation Executive Director tells Committee its fundraising effort is 90% on the Prescott side of Mingus Mountain
Mr. Steve Walker, Executive Director for the Yavapai Community College Foundation, and College Vice President, told the Verde Valley Governing Board Advisory Committee March 18 that fundraising efforts aimed at the Verde Valley had declined.
When asked about the time staff spent in the Verde Valley, he replied: “[I]t would be 10% of the effort right now. Because, truthfully, we’ve seen the volunteer participation decline.”
Volunteer effort in the Verde Valley has taken a nose dive since Mr. Walker and President Penelope Wills recommended in December, 2013 that the Greater Verde Valley Chapter of the Foundation be dissolved.
