The Sugar Bush Foundation is accepting applications for a student board member

The Sugar Bush Foundation will accept one worthy student to the Sugar Bush Foundation Board as a non-voting board member come summer 2014. The Sugar Bush Foundation supports Ohio University in their work to improve the quality of life in Appalachian Ohio by encouraging civic engagement and by fostering sustainable environmental and socioeconomic development.

They may serve on the board for a total of two years and are expected to attend three Sugar Bush Foundation board meetings a year (summer, winter and fall). The nominated student will be able to participate in the meetings and provide a voice on sustainability issues facing Ohio University and Appalachian Ohio. ­

To apply, students must submit their application and a letter of recommendation from a faculty member. These two items must be submitted by midnight on March 7, 2014. The application can be found on the Ohio University Office of Gift Planning website at
