Board Member of Excellence - Frank Robinson
April 27, 2022 - Frank Robinson, founding member of the Perry County Community Foundation’s board of directors, received a Board Member Award of Excellence from the Community Foundation of the Ozarks.
He was one of five board leaders honored within the CFO’s network of regional affiliate foundations. The awards were presented on April 25 during the CFO’s Affiliate Appreciation Conference in Springfield.
“Frank has acted on his vision for the Perry County Community in many very visible ways, including by urging a group of community leaders to establish the Perry County Community Foundation in 2014,” said Alice Wingo, CFO Vice President of Affiliates.
A recent example of Robinson’s leadership was shown through public forums for the discussion of a possible local hospital merger, which he organized. Robinson’s nominator described his leadership style as “compassion and openness,” and noted he is known as a beloved member of the community and the “embodiment of excellence” on the Perry County board.
“One cannot serve on a foundation board without first deeply loving one’s community,” CFO President Brian Fogle said. “That love is expressed through their excellent leadership and dedication that make their communities a better place to live for all their neighbors.”
The Perry County Community Foundation is one of the CFO’s 53 regional affiliate foundations. The CFO is a regional public charitable foundation established in 1973 that provides asset and resource development, grantmaking and public leadership across central and southern Missouri.
