As the first in this role, Haugk will be responsible for developing and maintaining donor relationships and promoting the foundation within the community, as well as general management responsibilities in coordination with the Board of Trustees.

She and her husband, a teacher in the district, have lived in the Olentangy Local School District since 2005 and have three children who attend the Olentangy Local School District.
“As the spouse of a teacher, and the parent of kids in the district, I appreciate the quality of education that the district is providing. However, this is a very young and rapidly growing district, and there are many opportunities for the community to support our schools. I look forward to helping match the resources available in our community with opportunities in the schools, to maximize the our kids’ educational experience,” Haugk said.
