The world needs more people like Fred Lemons

  1. Fred and LaRue small

cfo-ajs-lemons-1-300x200This week’s Community Foundation of the Ozarks column in the Springfield News-Leader is about Fred Lemons, the only president in the nearly 16 year history of the Lockwood Community Foundation, who passed away a couple of weeks ago. The column is written on behalf of everyone at the CFO, and is intended as a tribute to Fred and to all of the giants in small communities who work their entire lives to make their home towns better, stronger places. We know Fred certainly did.

You can read the column here.

The CFO’s column runs weekly in rotation with other organizations on the News-Leader’s new Community page, which is published daily. We appreciate this opportunity to share our work with News-Leader readers across the region.
