Steering Committee

The Heartland Steering Committee is composed of volunteers representing many areas of the community including parents, educators, business leaders, social service representatives, city government, and clergy. Some faces may have changed since the organization was founded in 1991, but the commitment of Heartland volunteers remains strong. Volunteers continue to meet monthly at 6:30 a.m. to discuss Heartland activities and community issues.
