Dr. Jim Shellard named as the new Director of Development for the Glenbrook Foundation


Dr. Jim Shellard was named as the new Director of Development for the Glenbrook High School Foundation.  Jim brings a wealth of experience with the Glenbrooks where he served as the assistant principal in charge of student activities at Glenbrook South High School and as the Summer School principal at both Glenbrook North and Glenbrook South High Schools for the past 24 years.  He replaces Sarah Samson who served as the previous director of development. During Sarah’s time with the Foundation, she helped to build strong connections between the Foundation and  Glenbrook North and Glenbrook South high schools.  In addition,  she helped to solidify the presence of the Foundation in the community and  coordinate the annual Night of Theater fundraising event.  Sarah has been invaluable in coordinating board members, committee work, and creating connections with alumni through reunion efforts.  Jim said, “I hope that I can continue the work that Sarah started and help the Foundation continue its mission of providing resources that further enhance and enrich educational experiences for District 225 students.”
