Doug is a passionate yet fair advocate for charter schools. His articles are well researched and fully thought out. I appreciate the fact that Doug will talk through issues with me even if we’re not in complete agreement — and will report in a way that is fair and balanced. He has been a great resource and is also a wonderful person to know. I enjoy working with him.
Doug’s commitment to Children’s HopeChest is exemplary to say the least. From his first experience with HopeChest, Doug has put his entire self into the organization. He works tirelessly to raise awareness and increase charitable donations, not to mention the level of planning and direction he offers. His expertise have been a huge asset to every aspect of his involvement.
As a member of the board of directors for Rocky Mountain Classical Academy charter school in Colorado Springs, I met Doug about five years ago when we hired him through Charter School Management.
To say that Doug has been instrumental in the success of our school is to greatly understate his role. I can say with complete honesty that RMCA would not be where they are today without Doug’s help, expertise and support.
