``The Independence School District has long been a pioneer in public education. Vast improvements have been made to the infrastructure of our school district but in order to position our students to compete, we must find new ways to fund existing and new innovative programs. The ISD Foundation has been providing substantial aid to the mission and while our achievements are noteworthy, we need to engage alumni and the Independence community for this noble cause.``
Bob Buckley, former ISDF Board President William Chrisman High School Alum
