Our board members are the heart of our chapter; here's a current listing. If you are interested in volunteering with us -- and becoming part of the board yourself -- just click "Chapter Contact" above to get in touch.

Chair: Colleen Bolton
Colleen and husband, Greg, raised two sons, currently enrolled in college, in Candia. During those years many hours were spent volunteering for and on the sidelines of Candia Youth Athletic Association sports. A career working in student support positions in higher education has her now at Southern New Hampshire University. The high cost of education and being the daughter of the first President of Scholarship America, the Dollars for Scholars chapters' national affiliate, is the motivation behind her volunteer efforts.

Vice Chair: Kathy Berger
In Candia's beautiful small town environment, Kathy and husband Tim raised their two daughters who are now (semi) independent college graduates. With a 20-year tenure of senior leadership, Kathy has a passion for assisting young people attain their personal goals, especially for higher education. She also enjoys compulsive book buying, downhill skiing, a houseful of guests and your "your table is ready".

Treasurer: Michele Vincent
After 35 years in the financial business it seems only natural that Michele would accept the position of treasurer for the Candia Dollars for Scholars.
