Easterseals Delaware & Maryland’s Eastern Shore recently welcomed Rotary District Governor, William Ferguson Sr., of Salisbury, MD, and Jen Mathews, of Hockessin, DE, to its Board of Directors.
“Rotary's relationship with Easterseals is heartwarming and satisfying and the opportunities to give back are never ending,” said Ferguson.
Ferguson is District Governor for Rotary District 7630, which includes the areas served by Easterseals. He is very active in the Salisbury Sunrise Rotary Club and has been a longtime volunteer at Rotary Work Days at Easterseals Camp Fairlee, as well as contributing to many other Rotary projects benefitting Easterseals. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the University of Baltimore. A veteran of the U.S. Navy, he worked at Royster Company for 25 years before moving to Salisbury, MD and joining Choptank Electric. He retired in 2015. Ferguson and his wife have one son and two grandchildren.
“It’s very exciting for me to work with Easterseals and help support this critical mission,” Mathews said. “Easterseals does so much for so many people. Everyone I’ve encountered, from the staff and board members to the people and caregivers they serve, make this a truly remarkable organization. I couldn’t be more honored to be part of it.”
Mathews is a Marketing Director for CSC®. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware. She has been very actively involved with Easterseals, spearheading CSC’s 2015 initiative to build and donate 10 ride-on cars modified for children with disabilities. In 2016, Mathews helped establish an Adapted Toy Library as part of the Easterseals Resource and Technology Demonstration Center through CSC’s donation.
