Rob served as an effective and dedicated leader since joining the Foundation in 2008. As an officer and educator, he has provided drive and direction toward our mission of expanding our scholarship program for Lisle students by a factor of ten over the last decade. He was the designer of the Ralph King Career and Technology Education Award, which recognizes and supports the post-secondary education of an exceptional student in this field. Rob speaks with great pride about this unique award and the importance for our board and the school to advocate for these deserving but generally underrepresented students with this profound opportunity.
Rob has also been innovative in creating meaningful and memorable alumni events. He hosted our first Partners Recognition Dinners and created new activities to reach a broader swath of the Lisle Alumni from all graduating years by appealing to their overall interests. He and Marcy have also generously opened their home to host our annual Board of Directors meetings and the first gathering of the Lisle Alumni Ambassadors in 2020. Rob Taylor designed the Carlin Nalley Foundation pins used to recognize our members and partners. The pins are displayed proudly at all our alumni events.
As a resident and active citizen, Rob remains a force for good in the Village of Lisle, embracing the cause of improving all aspects of life in his beloved hometown. Thank you, Rob, for your dedicated service and commitment to our ongoing mission for Lisle High School.
With Deep Gratitude for Your Leadership
Lisle Alumni Carlin Nalley Foundation Board of Directors,
