Introducing our 2019 Board of Directors: Cindy Powers 13th February 2019 Cindy Powers has strong feelings about the Rush County Community Foundation AND the Rush County community. She has a passion for giving back to the community she has raised her children in and lived in her entire life. The progression from board member to board president gives her a chance to give even more to the Rush County community. Read about Cindy below: Did you grow up in Rush County? Where did you go to school? Yes. I went to Jackson School, St. Mary’s, Mays, Rushville Junior High School, and RCHS. I also attended 1 year at Ivy Tech in Richmond, IN for a Medical Assistant certificate. What are your hobbies and interests? Piano and Organ—I have played at church since I was in the 7thGrade Do you work with any other community organizations? I only work with RCCF at this time What do you like most about your community? It is home. I like knowing people and watching kids of friends and family grow up. It is fun to be connected! How did you become involved with RCCF? I was first asked to be on the Scholarship Committee for a few years, and then served on several other committees. This is my 4thyear as a board member. What is something that people may not know about the Foundation that you wished they did? RCCF is so much more than just scholarships! The grants awarded to various organizations do so much to improve our community. The 2:1 Lilly Gift VII match is a great opportunity to increase our community grant funds. Do you believe that the Foundation plays an important role in the community? How so? RCCF simply helps make our community a better place. The Foundation is our friends and neighbors investing in our community—with time and treasure. It takes both to make it work.
