EPSF Presents Award of Appreciation to Brad Little
The Emmett Public School Foundation met with Gov. Brad Little this past week to present him with an award of appreciation for his work to further the mission of the Emmett Public School Foundation since 1989. The award also honored the memorial of his father, David Little, that worked to initially set up and organize the Emmett Public School Foundation and establish it with board membership and a 501(c)3 status. Rick Johnston, president, read a tribute to the Governor highlighting aspects of his work that continued to strengthen and invigorate members of our board to continually look for ways to support our local students, teachers, and educational institutions. Following is a quote from that tribute written by Rick Johnston:The Foundation is a result of David Little and Brad Little's example of selfless service to the community and most importantly to Education and our children and grandchildren. They exemplify the value of giving back and helping where help is needed; to give those children the opportunity to improve and make our communities and our state a better place to live, to learn and to teach them to give back.
Governor Little, through the example of his parents, David and Geri, learned the value of giving and helping others. It is evident in not only their monetary and asset contributions, but their time, their wisdom, their experience, and their timely advice and recommendations .Your Family and you Governor have been great benefactors to the families and children of Emmett which have been immensely blessed by your dedicated service.
We Thank You and commend you for all you have done for the Emmett Public School Foundation and going forward for that which you are doing for the Great State of Idaho . We know the Governor of Idaho will lead us to even greater heights.
