Businesses Named “Friends of the Foundation”
PET was pleased to recognize three local businesses as “Friends of the Foundation” for their very generous ongoing financial support of PET. “Friends of the Foundation” in the business category are Assured Comfort Heating and Air Services, GreyStone Power Corporation, and MembersFirst Credit Union.

PET is grateful for the support provided by these outstanding businesses.
PET Honors Three Individuals As “Friends of the Foundation”
As a volunteer-driven organization, PET relies on support from community-minded leaders to fulfill its mission. The Board recognized three of these leaders as “2015 Friends of the Foundation” in the individual category: CPA Clair Eskew, Kenny Duncan, and Dr. Sherri Hintz, each of whom has volunteered countless hours of service to PET. Mr. Eskew is a financial advisor for the Board, and Mr. Duncan and Dr. Hintz coordinate the Annual Teacher’s PET Fun Run. In the photo, Mr. Eskew poses with PET Executive Director Lynn L. Murray at the April 22 Recognition Reception.
