To The Herald-Whig:
Congratulations and thank you to Jill Arnold Blickhan as she steps down as president and CEO of the Community Foundation Serving West Central Illinois and Northeast Missouri. I have always found her to be very professional and knowledgeable. The foundation would not have been nearly as successful over the last 18 years without her leadership.
She has been very helpful to my wife and me with our own personal gift and estate planning, and we are Legacy Society members. She has also aided organizations in the community where I serve on their boards, helping us establish and grow funds to achieve our goals.
In addition, she has recruited me to present programs to executives and board members of other organizations, on how the community foundation has served and helped "my" organizations.
The community foundation and the entire 12 county community and beyond, owes her a big Thank You for helping connect people who care with causes that matter.
