Meet the Secretary of the Education Foundation of Greendale: Judy Foster
Judy Foster is our 2012-15 Education Foundation of Greendale Secretary. She does a great job of keeping our board informed with complete meeting minutes, and helps volunteer for the Foundation whenever she can!
Q. Hi Judy! Tell us about your family.
A. My husband is Wayne Foster. We have a daughter, Jocelyn, who was a 1994 GHS graduate, and Jon, a 1990 GHS graduate (deceased 6/7/98), and two grandchildren.
Q. What is your occupation?
A. I'm retired now, and enjoy being a grandma. I’m a former high school Family and Consumer Education teacher. I started my career at Greendale High School and also taught at Nathan Hale.
Q. What do you like to do in your free time?
A. I help facilitate Grief Groups and book studies at our church. I’m a caregiver for my loving mother. I’m an enthusiastic genealogical researcher for my family, and I’m writing my mother's story.
I love nature photography! A friend who loves writing Haiku poetry and I are combining our talents into cards and a book. She is writing poetry in response to the photos I have taken. I’ve creating several memorial quilts, and I enjoy reading memoirs.
Q. What’s your favorite restaurant in Greendale?
A. Ricardo's Pizza - The best pizza anywhere. We remember the "original" Ricardo's when we ate at the picnic tables in the back!
Q. What are your hopes and plans for the Education Foundation, going forward?
A. I look forward to realizing the day when the entire village population knows the organization and the priorities of EFG and is motivated to participate. Our marketing plan will direct us in this effort. As we seek new ways to reconnect with our alumni both in the Milwaukee area and in the nation, our alums and residents can be united in supporting the grants which create opportunities for teachers, students and the district to develop their fullest potential. I hope everyone will say, "Yes, for Greendale kids."
