Recently, Dr. Bryan Vander Lugt has stepped down from his position as Vice President of the San Bruno Education Foundation Board to pursue other volunteer opportunities in the community.
Bryan served on the SBEF Board for three years and made significant contributions to SBEF. When Bryan first joined, he partnered with SBEF treasurer at the time, Renee Callantine, to lead our national award-winning Music Education Strategic Initiative across all San Bruno schools, resulting in equitable access to high-quality music education for every San Bruno student.
He was also able to build strong partnerships with civic organizations, foundations and community groups and expand the foundation of support for our schools. These relationships allowed SBEF to quickly mobilize support to generate over $300,000 in emergency funding for internet access and technology for students and teachers when our schools switched to remote learning in the spring.
Bryan’s twin son and daughter attended Allen Elementary and are now at Parkside Intermediate. Bryan is a research scientist and project manager at Amgen.
While we will miss Bryan, we are honored to maintain his knowledge and skill in SBEF as a key contributor going forward, and we are excited to see what the future holds for him in our school community.
Thank you for all you’ve done for SBEF and our schools, Bryan!
