A Lasting Legacy

It is impossible to measure the impact of Peter and Joan Secchia’s investment in the SAF on the students of Grand Rapids over the years. As a founding member and former board president, Joan recognized a need in our community and stepped up to help. Joan helped build the Foundation into a vibrant entity supporting the children of Grand Rapids Public Schools through five areas of impact. The SAF’s mission became Joan’s as well: to ensure all GRPS students have the tools and experiences they need to learn.
