Portrait of George SchmidbauerI serve on the Advancement Foundation Board mainly because of a sense of duty. I live in this area, and so I want to help the University. I know that Humboldt State has a real impact on our lives.

President Richmond was the one who initially got me involved. He was doing some things at Humboldt State that I thought had promise. And it has been interesting to learn about what's going on and how the campus is managing its money. In particular, I've been interested in how we're using the endowment and making sure that we're spending that money the best way possible.

I'm impressed with the students at Humboldt State, and I think the University is moving in the right direction. I'm glad to be able to help when I can.
