Co-Founder Retires from Friends of Quaker Valley Schools Board

Timothy Merrill helped start the organization with a single $50 math award in 1977.

A co-founder of the Friends of Quaker Valley Schools education foundation has retired from the board.

Trustees of the Friends foundation recently announced Timothy Merrill's retirement. Merrill along with David Nimick and Dr. Nancy Auer started the FRIENDS organization in 1977 with a single $50 math award.

The organization has grown to provide annual scholarships to Quaker Valley graduates, annual Distinguished Staff awards as well as program support for the after-school arts and robotics program, the community youth worker and other initiatives.

“Tim joins David and Nancy as a retired Trustee, and we thank them for helping our students achieve great success by rewarding them with scholarships and awards,” Dorothy Pollon, president of the Friends of Quaker Valley Schools education foundation said in a news release.

“Without their vision and diligence our students would not have been afforded the opportunity to be recognized for their outstanding achievements and academic successes.”

Qualified individuals must have fundraising experience; and/or a finance and investment background.
