JEF Indian Chief

Back Row: Blake and Curt Porter

The Jacksonville Education Foundation is happy to announce its first JEF Indian Chief! The Porter family of Jacksonville recently made the donation in memory of Darrell Porter.

Darrell, a long-time local pharmacist was a well known and admired community leader in Jacksonville. His wife, Tricia, along with their children, Blake Porter, Angela Porter Lisenby, and Curt Porter made the generous donation following JEF events in August.

Thank You, Porter Family, for partnering with JEF as an Indian Chief as we continue our efforts to support academic excellence in JISD.
