Program - 
Steve Munson introduced Jim Spencer, Executive Director of the Sterling Schools Foundation.  Jim spoke about the evolution of the foundation supporting both sports and academics at Sterling Public Schools.  Golden Warrior TV has been a successful venture for the foundation with sports and arts broadcast regularly and patrons subscribing for a modest fee.  This helps for raise funds for things like the Imacs used by students grades 6 - 12.  A current project is the video scoreboard that will be installed at the north end of the stadium at SHS.   Jim presented sponsorship opportunities for businesses to advertise on the scoreboard. The Sterling Schools Foundation is a huge asset to Sterling schools.  Thanks Jim for your leadership.
