Hether has provided consistent, positive, critical board leadership at PFC for over 15 years. She has been part of GM hiring and transition, supported through the transition to policy governance, led an owner loan campaign that raised $580,000 toward our new home, and consistently supports board leadership development. PFC would definitely not be where we are today without Hether’s strong commitment, leadership skills and passion for the mission.
