Personal Comments

Grade school education is a priority of Keith’s, and he has taken up this cause in his volunteer work. He was one of the three founding members of the St. Gerard fund, a scholarship fund established in 1997 that has assisted families in paying for a Catholic education in an area around his former school. It awards scholarships amounting to approximately $60,000 per year. He continues serving on the board of that organization and reviewing applications on a yearly basis.
