After serving on the Cordova Community Foundation Advisory Board for more than a year, Angela Butler resigned her position in an effort to return balance to her work and personal life. The CCF is grateful for all the time and energy she gave to the organization, closing out our first year as a resounding success! Angela continues her heartfelt service as she plans to volunteer at future CCF events. Thank you, Angela!
Another change on the CCF Advisory Board sees Jake Borst join CCF as a new Advisory Board member. Jake was born in Washington and moved to Cordova at the age of 10. After graduating from Cordova High School and with a degree in Social Science and Health from Western Oregon University, Jake joined the Peace Corps where he served in rural Mongolia for over two years. There, he spent the majority of his time the same way he has in the United States—working with student leaders and school staff as a community youth development professional. He facilitated the school’s first student council in the town where he lived.
Since returning to the U.S., Jake continues to work with youth and community stakeholders as a teacher and coach of junior high and high school boys’ basketball. He fishes in the summer and enjoys hiking with his golden lab, Naraa.
We are thrilled to have Jake join our Advisory Board! Jake has a deep connection to the youth of Cordova and will bring his own invaluable perspective. Welcome, Jake!
