GETTING TO KNOW YOUR TIPP CITY FOUNDATION BOARD MEMBERS
DIANA FEATHERSTONE, BOARD MEMBER SINCE 2016
Meeting board members, and learning of their area of interest, is one way to shake hands with the people volunteering for the foundation.
Tip your hat to Diana, e-media chairperson. She handles all Foundation communication that uses an electronic platform. Diana explains, “the use of technology is a key element used to communicate with our community”. For example, under her guidance the TIPPing Point e-newsletter invites readers to stay connected online. Diana also uses Facebook and Instagram to showcase the impact on our community.
Diana explains that being active on the board requires “being able to see the big picture, being ethical, and being in alignment with the organization.” Diana is an experienced board member sitting on several local boards and being an unwavering advocate for our community.
She believes the success of the board is based on the diversity reflected in the members. Board members are different ages, live in different areas of the community, and have varying areas of expertise.
Diana and her husband, McKay, moved to Tipp City in 2006 from Indianapolis, Indiana. They have two active teens and enjoy sports events.
Diana also volunteers her time as a CASA/GAL serving abused and neglected children throughout Miami County.
I asked Diana about a favorite grant awarded by the Foundation. She felt a connection with the Tipp Pride Association. The grant is a commitment of $75,000 over 10 years toward the building of a new stadium in City Park. This stadium will seat 3,500 spectators. What a special way to celebrate the Tipp City Foundation’s 75th Anniversary.
It was exciting to sit across the table from Diana and see the passion and devotion she clearly feels for the work she does for all of us. Thanks Diana.
