John Barry, Attorney, and member of Greeley for 37 years, played a large role in the founding of The Success Foundation. Judy Kron, TSF’s first Executive Director, approached him to be on the board – a request he said he could never refuse, and he was honored to be asked. They started The Foundation in 2010, and began a partnership with the Greeley-Evans School District.
John served on the board from 2010-2016. He said “the most rewarding part was simply knowing that our work and contributions were serving to inspire and raise the confidence of our District 6 Students.” Although John is no longer on our board, he has maintained involvement in the organization. He continues to donate and volunteer, because he “know[s] that the donations are spent very carefully and very wisely, and the volunteer time is fun and also for a great cause.”
Mr. Barry believes the community needs to know how much of a difference The Success Foundation continues to make in the lives of both our students and teachers. He wants the surrounding community to know that we, as a foundation for District 6, continually push innovation, which allows our students to approach learning in new ways, keeping them engaged, and interested in the content, which plays a very important role in our future.
Thank you, John, for all that you’ve done for The Success Foundation!
