Founded to be permanent support for Vanguard College Preparatory School.
This is our story
The Vanguard Foundation was founded in June 1992 to be a permanent endowment for Vanguard College Preparatory School. A charitable remainder trust was set up by Jeanne and Russell Judson with the understanding that the assets of the trust would go to the Foundation upon their death. Thanks to their generosity, the Foundation received this funding in 2009.
For most of its history, the Foundation was governed by a Board of five members plus the Head of School.
The Foundation gratefully acknowledges the service of this group, several of whom served the Foundation and Vanguard College Preparatory School for decades:
Sandra S. Corwin, President • 1992-2020
Joe A. Flowers, Vice-President • 1992-current
Thomas M. Flowers, Secretary-Treasurer • 1992-2019
Wesley J. Filer • 1992-2000
William J. Pakis • 2000-2020
Ed Davis, Head of School • 1992-1994
Dr. Linda Goble Tinsley, Head of School • 1996-2000
Fred Neill, Head of School • 2004-2006
Bill Borg, Head of School • 2007-current
In 2020, the Vanguard Foundations by-laws were revised and the Board expanded to include eight members plus the Head of School. These steps were taken in anticipation of the Board adopting a more active posture in promoting the school and its activities.
