Julie Beehler, Board Co-Chair, worked for more than 35 years in Naperville 203, starting as an elementary teacher and later serving as Principal at Beebe and Naper Elementary schools before becoming Director of Administrative Services for the District. Now retired, she continues to support students and families through volunteer work for NEF and for Loaves and Fishes. Beehler is originally from Naperville and she and her children grew up in District 203. “I was an administrator when NEF began and I’ve seen NEF’s value from the very beginning,” Beehler said. “Especially as Principal, I’ve seen firsthand the funding that NEF provides has been a way to help kids and families in a different way than the school itself was ever".
