Comments Off

On the 24th of April, the SESF Board of Directors welcomed David Pistone as our new Director of Education Initiatives.

Dave grew up in Southern California. After working in the Aerospace industry for 10 years, he moved to Nevada County in 1984 with his wife, Dale, in search of a better environment to raise a family. Dave worked as an Engineering manager for Intel from 1984 until 2013, at which time he left in order to become involved in the education system and pursue some ideas for improving it. He is a graduate of Cal State Long Beach with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business and is currently completing his Masters of Education degree.

We will be hearing more about Dave’s initiative in future posts. He has already got a running start.
