The Mudd Nick Foundation Board of Directors selected Dave and Ellen Dukehart as the 2014 Persons of the Year for their tireless devotion to the Foundation’s mission to serve the children of our community.
Dave was a classmate of Jim Mudd at Oregon State University, and their close friendship continues to this day. He and Ellen joined the Mudd Nick Foundation Board of Directors in 2006 and subsequently provided guidance to mold the Foundation’s mission and goals and create the structure, processes and procedures that enable the organization to function professionally and efficiently. Dave and Ellen’s experience in donor management and fund raising techniques has been instrumental in achieving a higher level of donations each year. The Foundation would not be as successful today without the careful stewardship of the Dukeharts.
In May 2014, Dave and Ellen officially retired from the Foundation’s Board, but remain enthusiastic volunteers and generous donors.
We thank Dave and Ellen for the many years and countless hours of work they have dedicated to the Mudd Nick Foundation and children of North Tillamook County.
