In his new role, Ward -- a 2005 DePauw graduate -- will mobilize and facilitate endeavors in philanthropy, stewardship, giving and serving for the common good of Huntingburg and Southwest Dubois County, Indiana.

Ward joins the Foundation after serving three years for the American Cancer Society in Bloomington, Indiana, where he was community development director. He has also served as a member of the board of directors of Teen Outback, a youth service center in Huntingburg.

"This is a Foundation that serves a community where we know each other, where the needs are immediate and relevant," says Ward, who was a Bonner Scholar at DePauw. "It provides the community a vehicle to give large or small gifts for a stronger and better community today and tomorrow."Students August 2006 4.jpg
