EEF Board Member Spotlight

Sharon Belobraidich

Name:  Sharon Belobraidich

Years Served on Board:  LOTS!  Since 1990

Profession:  Retired P-CCS Elementary Teacher

Leadership roles held with the EEF:  Chairperson for 6 years, Secretary for 7 years,  Golf Outing Chairperson for about 11 years

Why did you get involved in the EEF?

While teaching I was the vice President of the PCEA and Chuck Portelli was president.  Many times he would be called to the high school for problems in a building in the morning and had to miss the Foundation meeting, so I stepped in to help.

What do you enjoy most about volunteering with the organization?

I love giving back to the community in which I live.   I was fortunate enough to also be employed here for 40 years. I love raising money for the schools and for teachers.   When my husband died in 1987, I never had to worry about having a job. I loved being able to to be close to my daughters as they went to P-CCS.

What is a book you've recently read that you would recommend to a friend?

Disloyal by Michael Cohen

Share a fun fact about yourself.

Last year I spent the entire year writing a book about my life.   It was amazing what I learned about myself and why I am why I am. It was a very worthwhile experience.
