Elk Grove Village resident Barb Quinn, a former District 54 parent and staff member, joined the Foundation board in 2014. Her late husband Dennis had served as Foundation chair and Barb had worked with him on a variety of activities, believing it is essential for the community at-large to work with the district to enhance and enrich educational opportunities for all students. Barb enjoys supporting the Foundation in providing opportunities to students through activities that are not funded by the district, especially grants for students from families of limited means to participate in summer programs. Barb joined the PTA while her three children attended District 54 schools and served as state president from 2005-2007. She is still active in several local PTA units, as well as the district and state PTA, and she also is involved with outreach programs through the church she attends.
