It’s one thing to gather a donation to provide science, technology, engineering and math education to school communities, but it’s a completely other thing to make sure it works well.

That’s one of the reasons why the San Mateo-Foster City Education Foundation board has decided to add two student board members. Another reason is to serve the students and allow them an opportunity to elevate their voices, have a platform in the community and build their leadership skills. It’s not a symbolic move, according to Annie Tsai, foundation board president.

Very sad to hear about Dorothy Dimitre. She gave us lots to think about.


As someone who has volunteered with organizations like Youth Community Service and who has studied and promoted service learning I know that one of the pillars of effective programs is having student voice at the heart of any program. Kudos to the foundation board for adding two student board members!
