Robert Askins became Executive Director of the Wapakoneta Area Community Foundation in 2017. He replaced Larry Tester who had led the Foundation since its creation in 1989. As a former Wapakoneta High School principal, Bob brought great organizational and problem-solving skills to the Foundation leadership.  He worked to create an effective website explaining the value and programs of the Foundation. He also saw a need to develop an online process for scholarship applications. He did research and found a vendor who replaced the former paper application process and developed an effective applicant scoring system. Fortunately, Bob has agreed to fill a seat of the Foundation Board of Directors where he continues to help guide the Foundation in the right direction. For all of this and much more, we say—THANK YOU BOB!
