In that effort he demonstrated a high level of resourcefulness and excellent communication skills in delivering hope that a good program could become even better.
He was a strong advocate for the program in the community and developed marketing strategies to ensure the primary funder could fully appreciate what the program had to offer youth.
As a person of high character, who possesses strong leadership skills and has a demonstrated history of organization, enthusiasm and accomplishment, Thomas Allgoewer is definitely worthy of your consideration."
