Dick Munro’s tireless service to the community and GNL is an inspiring model for all. He has an ever-ready willingness to say, “Yes; Count me in; I’ll help.” Dick (Class IX) does more than wade into volunteer activities; he dives. That is the case with the David Lawrence Foundation, the Community Foundation and WGCU Public Radio. He advocates for education, particularly early education, and its powers to change lives, and he participates in community activities that do just that: First Book, Champions For Learning, Fun Time Early Childhood Academy, and the Early Learning Literacy Model program of Head Start at Avalon School.
